Golden swift

Heysham Obs
Actinic traps run by Justine produced the goods today with quite a variety and also a revival of sorts in the hut trap.  This included a new species for the reserve in the form of Gold Swift (in the heathland area) along with quite a few routine year ticks including Broom Moth, Sallow Kitten and an unseasonal Angle Shades.  Some micros yet to be identified
