Middleton for a change

Grasshopper Warbler reeling away whilst I moth trapped late evening 8/6/10

A good turn out in slightly windy conditions.
Silver Hook was a good find and miles away from its Silverdale / White Moss stronghold.

3 Shaded Pugs were the first Lancashire records away from HNR in years, albeit in the same tetrad.
3 Elephant Hawks and 2 Poplar Hawks around the light at the same time were a fine sight.
42 species in all.

Late news 4/6/10: Scrobipalpa acuminatella (gen det male) was new for Northern VC60, thanks to Steve Palmer for help with this one.
