This is the list for the SMGroups night at Cothelstone Hill on the 8th June 2007. Last year in July was unbelieavable and it lived up to its reputation again. With the help of Andy Harris the Quantocks Ranger I was joined by Mike Ridge and Robin Clatworthy. The night was warmish to start off a bit cloudy and the rain held off. I ran three lights and got 62 species at the light on a stick and 38 and 47 species at my two ROBO traps. Mike accumulated 56 species and Robin 60 species. The final total at the moment is 99 species with out of the 850 moths. Having said that Mike was so busy he only took a sample of the common stuff flying in. This will get to 100 when I find out what the well marked pyralid is that Mike caught.

This is just a fantastic site with atleast 10 new records for this 10km square.

The variety called Gallus of map winged swift was present with very few markings on the wing. Also the female of the brown rustic got us scrambling for the books as it looked a different moth. I even managed to do the gen dets. on the dodgy stuff such as the minors and daggers.

I will ammend the list soon include pictures when possible
