    If you go to the DECC website it is possible to search for the species lists by NP.

    Looks pretty complete to me. That list includes many more species than I have seen in my 4 visits.

    You should have a great time there with so much to photo. Be sure and go on the Grand High Tops walk. It is not too bad and the views are spectacular.


    Regards,
    David
