Cranfield Uni bioblitz bonus

Andy and I ran two MV lights for a couple of hours at Cranfield Uni last night as part of their bioblitz weekend. Prospects weren't good as it had rained during the day and it hadn't been especially warm. We didn't catch large numbers of moths, or as many species as one might expect at this time of year. However, late on we found a single Double Dart, a moth species that hasn't been seen in the county for nearly 11 years and one which we thought we would never see in the county. So was a good end to the evening.
