5 October 2014 - Dungeness

Joined Marc at Dungeness for a spot of very cold, moon-lit moffin. The original decision to trap down there was based on a Friday afternoon waether forecast - alas, this changed (alot!) in the 48 hours between then and arrival on site...

A painfully slow session did at least produce half a dozen Feathered Brindle and a fun looking micro - which looked much better in the photographs than it did in the scale...

1 Oct 2014 - Cliffe Marshes RSPB

Popped 'up norff' to Cliffe for a spot of moffin. The mix of moths was strange for October - but perhaps that's to be expected given the length of the season and the number of second generation species appearing.
