Cullaloe LNR - that escalated quickly...

So a chance meeting with the county moth recorder on the 1st meant we stayed up until the wee small hours bothering moths, running 7 traps in all. In addition to a few flies and beetles the sudden shot in the arm for moths means that I'm into the last 100. That includes, happily, another two hovers for the site and also a couple of nice big Tipulas (maxima and vulvipennis). Here's another lovey big crane that was in the trap - Pedicia rivosa. The stockpiling of sawflies and caddisflies continues. Should we have a rainy few days I definitely won't be short of things to do.

Last year the 100th species was on 21st June. Fingers crossed... after a slow end of May I see I'm now precisely 4 species ahead of where I was last year on 3rd June. So why not?

  1. The numbers certainly show the value of running the moth traps!
