58 Danny Cooper 2227 22nd August, 2015 getting the moth trap out in the garden helped me add a few including Larch Pug Eupithecia lariciata Grass Rivulet Perizoma albulata and Bloxworth Snout Hypena obsitalis. The PSL weekend was brilliant, as well as meeting a few fellow listers I added 19 species including Omphlus pubescens. The fishing was good too! Seeing Sally was good as she always shows me things that have been in front of me all along like Nettle Gall Dasineura urticae, then meeting Richard Comont who helped me sort out me humbles and added Southern Cuckoo Bee Bombus vistalis. Few things seen with Mark Whittiker locally and looking forward to a few things in the coming weeks!
