Bog moths and raft spider

It was a very wet night on Cors Fochno but not as cold as last weekend. Two heath traps produced 9 moths of 5 species: Yellow horned, Chestnut, Dotted border, Engrailed and Satellite. Lurking underneath one trap was a raft spider, Dolomedes fimbriatus, a common inhabitant of boggy places.
