21 July 2016 - Orlestone Forest

Visited Orlestone again on the 21st July - for the third time this summer I've stuck three traps along the ride, beside the Bracken, that I caught the Latin on last year. Though no Latins were caught , it was a nice selection of micros that made the effort worthwhile.

Comments on my putative ID's is, as ever, very much appreciated.

15 July 2016 - St Margaret's, Kent

Took a trip down to St Margaret's with John Robinson to introduce him to moffin. A nice couple of hours which I had hoped would yield a few more numbers and spp, but 60 macro spp was more than enough to show the moffin ways.

I expected to encounter Sub-angled Wave following last year's capture of several and wasn't disappointed - quite why I potted the worn example rather than a coupe of fresher specimens, I have no idea.
