I am talking to the Low Ham Ladies Group tonight so went trapping at Gares Barton with the kind permission of Angela Wilden last night to show the group some real moths. The night went a bit cold but the rain held off as the wind died. The site has wonderful flower rich meadows and large gardens. 47 species out of the 169 moths counted except a number of Minors but not the splendid rufous minors which I sorted out today.
