18 June 2016 - Nth of Canterbury

Spent a cold couple of hours under clear skies just north of Canterbury (Thornden/West Blean area). About 33% of the macros were Four-dotted Footman - but the numbers all round were poor. Few nice micros helped provide some colour for the evening... Would really appreciate confirmation on any of the images below - tis always much appreciated.

Thanks Ben (again!)

Not sure of the status of arcuella is in Kent, but it sure brightened up a very slow evening.

Hmmm - where to go Tuesday night... Looks best night this week...

With kind regards,
