• 30th June moth trapping!

    Today there was only a small group of us checking the traps, but we still found quite a few new species! Its nice seeing an influx of new species as the season progresses! We also had bit more of a chance to put our micro ID skills to the test with three new micro species to identify, though we only managed to ID one, so let us know if you know what the other one is!!
