7 April 2012 - Loch of the Lowes, Perthshire

Thanks to Emma and her volunteer colleagues (Brian, Lauren & Tom) I had a thoroughly enjoyable evening mothing at the Scottish Wildlife Trust's Loch of the Lowes Reserve. A respectable 192 moths of 17 species. Highlights were a stunning chocolate form of Water Carpet and an as yet unidentified micro... A few other more regular species were nice to catch up with again.
