Redhouse Barns, Goldcliff 3rd July - National Moth Night, Day One.

I ran the MV and recorded 40 species, including 10 elephant hawks, 1 magpie, 1 silver-Y, 1 double-lobed, 1 July high-flyer, 3 grey/dark dagger, 1 peppered, 2 rosy footmen and the stunning micro Catoptria pinella.

For the 1st time I up-loaded the records to the Moth Night website (accessed via the Atropos website). I was amazed how quick it was to do. Once you entered your details into the 1st line of records it defaults to these for each subsequent record. Once you've typed in a few letters of each common name it predicts the rest or gives you a couple of options to pick from. So quick and worth doing, to take part in the World's biggest moth survey.
