Kiltarlity Moth Trapping - 3rd September 2016

The event was held at the Highland Liliums Garden Centre, Kiltarlity on 3rd of September 2016

8 BC members turned up to a most enjoyable meeting with 175 moths of 35 species caught from 5 traps placed on our croft and near Rob Chapman's house at Ardendrain.  See below for full list.  

The highlight was a Crescent which was new to me and a first for the 10km square.
