Moths 03 July

Saturday saw me wheel the trap out after a few days where I knew I wouldn't have the time. In terms of numbers a 05:30 recovery perhaps ensured that I kept more in the box than usual and as a result had a good night. ID's as usual have proved interesting and the jury is still out on one or two but I think it is important to keep trying to ID myself, familiarity is fundamental to learning. It would be no good posting stuff up without at least trying to pin them down as the process of searching reinforces the images much ore than simply posting them on a forum.
At the same time when I am coming up blank it's good to know that there are several helpful individuals out there willing to take a look, it is much appreciated.
