The chance to run a moth trap at Eype was something high on my priorities but as I knew no-one there I was not sure how I was going to be able to. However the other day I was chatting to the landlady of the pub and it turned out she was very keen on wildlife. Even better she was happy for me to run a moth trap there. Initially just one night a week, but its a start.
The first go (on Friday night) resulted in 45 moths of 10 species (including 1 lifer!) and Dark Sexton beetles, which was a very good start!
Highlight was a couple of Oak Beauty's - photo below.
Also the run of very low tides last week-end prompted me to copy Seth and turn over (and then replace) as many tideline stones as possible. Fairly poor return for my efforts but was encouraged by the stone below
A Strawberry Anemone no less.
Finally, for the record Eype on 246 and Thorne on 262
