I made it to 5000! So intense was my identification fury this afternoon that I actually overshot and I'm now on 5001 species. Actually my 5000th species was quite a boring and common hoverfly, Platycheirus cypleatus I recorded yesterday near the Pevensey Levels. So here is the 5001st species instead, a cool little (it's under 3mm long) staph called Stenus fornicatus. I'm already looking forward to the next 1000 species!
