Falkland Palace, 12th June, 4 MV traps

A public mothing event at the palace saw traps out in force. Four traps were run in different corners of the palace grounds - at least until one packed up at about midnight anway. It did well before then though.

Undoubtedly the star of the show was Scorched Wing (last pic), in only its second fife site.

Also in one of the traps was a soldierfly (Chloromyia formosa) and a hoverfly (Platycheirus nielseni). If the latter is confirmed it may be the first Fife record.

About 30 species were trapped overall. I'll wait until I receive confirmation before adding the total list
