July Moths - Kingfisher

A record 4,791 moths from 1308 records were captured in my home traps in July adding 3 macro and 10 micro moths to my garden list bringing it up to a respectable 578 species since August 2005. With so many moths around the traps also produced 22 second and 11 third only records. I recorded over 200 moth species averaging just under 150 moths a night. Still to do Dave's records but I'm sure his results will be better than mine - lets hope it continues in to August.

A short walk around Brandon Marsh at mid-day did not produce much with the rising water levels but prolonged views of Kingfisher was welcome. Plenty of Damsel and Dragonflys around.
