Wednesday 28th July 2010 - Captains Pool

Overnight I ran my moth trap alongside Captains Pool, at the northernmost edge of the patch. As my trap is only a Heath Trap, I wasn't expecting a vast array of moths to be caught, but overall I was quite pleased with the results. A total of 14 macro moths were caught with highlights being Gold Spot, Lesser Broad-bordered Yellow Underwing, Large Yellow Underwing, Lime-speck Pug and Dingy Footman.

I would like to thank Tony Smith for his help in using the trap at this location and his wife Jean for a bostin cup of tea!
