Day 4 of the #CityNatureChallenge was very successful after the storm-related inactivity of day 3, with 106 observations from the Lobau and Prater. Highlights include:
My first sighting of wild european pond turtles
My first black woodpeckers
This interesting spider
These enormous beetle larvae
This cool looking moth
And many, many oil beetles
That makes a total of 213 observations over the long weekend. It’ll take some time for them to be identifed down to species level, but it looks like at least 130 individual species.
