Sand Point VC6 - 800

Last night produced ideal conditions for moth trapping. At half light the temptation proved too much so I packed my gear up and ran a single MV on the patch until 1am. Highlights were: Shore Wainscot, 2 Acleris umbrana, European Corn-borer, 2 Ypsolopha sequella, Catoptria pinella.

  4. Thanks Seth. Just looking back through June 2013 and the 1K king Andy Musgrove was on 904 on 30th June. With only a couple of Gen Dets left I think 104 in two days is going to be tricky.

  5. I seriously need to up my game, though 5 lifers yesterday was a nice bonus.
