We had planned this for months, during which we had mostly sunny skies and drought conditions. Two days before the Bioblitz the rain started, and continued throughout, often very heavily.
We still got a reasonable turnout, but would probably have had a lot more public participation in sunny weather.
For results of the surveys, see:
- Other vertebrates (mammals reptiles, frogs)
- Moths and butterflies
- Other insects
- Other arthropods (crustaceans, millipedes, etc.)
- Other invertebrates (worms, molluscs)
