Dalgety Bay, 28/09/2017

Had an hour or so with actinic in Bathing House Wood
Common Marbled Carpet (1)
Square-spot Rustic (2)
Red-green Carpet (1)
Angle Shades (1)

Wasn't going bad but decided to ead home anyway. Left the actinic in the back garden overnight and caught one Blair's Shoulder Knot. Amazing how dull the battery powered actinic looks compared to an 80W MV!
