Caught this Tanner Beetle last night (31/7/13) - a huge beast that the books state as being widespread but only the fifth record on the kent database - nice!

26 July 2013 - The Larches
A nice session at The Larches - included this rather smart Rose Plume. Only 15 other records for Kent - mostly from the Hoo Penninsular.

26 July 2013 - Ditton Quarry LNR (lunchtime!)
A quick lunchtime visit with some pheromones produced nothing in one corner of the site - yet 8 Six-belted Clearwing males very rapidly just a couple of hundred metres away - superb wee beasties!

17 July 2013 - West Kent
Went out to do some trapping on a reserve last night and caught a very healthy 78 spp of macros before packing up at around midnight. Best of the catch was 5 Lappets - and I didn't think they still occurred in West Kent. Leopard Moth (4), Oak Eggar (3), Drinker (2), Herald Moth (1), L-album Wainscot (5) - all very welcome. Some other images from the night are below.
|Barred Rivulet ? (is this righ though?)|
|Peppered Moth var. carbonaria|
|Short Cloaked Moth|
|Small Dusty Wave|
|Southern Wainscot - I think|
|pug - grey?|
