Ynys Las and Fochno Sunday 17th July
Dr Marc Botham paid us another visit and we enjoyed a warm productive night down at Ynys Las sitting with a 60w actinic and 2 MV's whilst the 6w and 15w boxes were on Cors Fochno. In addition to the above stars we had 3 or 4 Rosy Waves, dozens of Brown Plume, 8 Garden Tigers (in a Heath!), Bordered Sallow and Bordered Beauty,White Line dart, Barred Yellow and Galium Carpet among the 90 species caught.
Micros were numerous and Peter H will be receiving some winter amusement from Marc! Don't worry Ina you'll get the full list.
Thanks to Jane Kelsall for additional help in setting up and accommodation, to Bri for safely releasing the boxfulls of moths after processing and Tony Cross for guest appearance though we hadn't caught any Sandwich terns!
Also thanks to Mike Bailey and NRW for permissions.
