The second surprise for today was the sudden appearance of the Scarlet Elf Cap - Sarcoscypha austriaca var. austriaca:

Third surprise was this little Sepsid fly:
Next surprise was the Cow Parsley beginning to open. I don't normally expect to see that until April.

My search for species for the 1k square challenge has now reached just over 200 species in a week, with very few new additions to the square apart from the Sarcoscypha and the Sepsid.
