Home safe and sound -lucky bugger

Arrived home just hours before an almighty rain storm had swept through the country causing wide spread flooding and the news that a train had derailed at Tulloch which I had passed through in the night. I had forgotten to turn my trap lights off and with the ideal conditions while I was away and contained 57 species from 304 moths including new for the year Varied Coronet, Miller, Beautiful Hook-tip, Snout and Ribband Wave. Rest of day spent cat-napping, washing and planning my return trip plus one to the Ribblehead viaduct soon.
