Cullaloe 20/09/2014

With two MVs and the heath trap we still faced an uphill struggle against falling temperatures. A few species were added to the year list though. The brambles above the spillway saw more activity than the traps maybe with Pink-barred Sallows in abundance and also a couple of Red-line Quakers.

Pick of the bunch for me in terms of beauty if not scarcity was Canary-shouldered Thorn

There was also a Banded Sexton  Beetle, Nicrophorus investigator, one of the red-antenna'd Nicrophorus. Lots of passengers too, but I'll let them pass on ID this time around.
