(Leader: Nick Sturt)

The Roman poet Horace warned good folk to avoid the company of sinners lest they become collateral damage in a punishing bolt from Jupiter.  As lightning crashed about us and we hastened to the shelter of our cars, I tried to guess which of the ten SBRS members had incurred his wrath.  Our mission, to record the apparently unloved TQ01Q tetrad on top of the Downs, had been abandoned after an hour and 99 species.  Soaked and with further electrical activity heading in, the surprisingly merry band dispersed, leaving me alone with my thoughts.  I was pretty certain by then that it was Beryl.
