Back to bog moths

After a week in SW Scotland we were back on Cors Fochno last night with two 15W lights (1 Skinner and 1 Heath). We recorded 141 moths of 42 species of which only one was a micro, Catoptria Margaritella, which was a bit disappointing. Most common species were Striped and Smoky Wainscot, and True Lover's Knot. Two bog specialists were Round-winged Muslin and Small Rufous.
