Cullaloe 23/07/2014

Another good night with fog although numbers were down this time - fortunately, as it allowed me to go back to bed for another hour's sleep! Spent about half an hour walking the paths and netting flying objects last night with my daughter - more than we could catch by far with one net and one headtorch between us. We did manage to snag a Phoenix this way, which was a good catch. I also peeked under the forewing of a Smoky Wainscot to make sure it checked out - everything was kosher under there. Beautiful Carpet, which I think should check out, is a new NT18 species I think. Burnished Brass was a cracking looking moth, but it's appeal is hard to convey with a photo as it depends on the right incident light to show its shiny bits.
