National Moth Night 2009

What are you doing? NMN has been going for 10 years now, and it was almost a standing joke that once the date was announced you just knew the mothing conditions were going to be pants on that night. This year the theme is immigration, and there are the added novelties that it is a two-night event and moths at various coastal and pertinant locations are being colour marked to see if any are picked up elsewhere. Our loose plan, whether dependant, is to trap locally in VC55 on Friday 18th (hopefully up on a hill somewhere is conditions suitable) and to get down to the south coast for a mega multi-light blitz on the Saturday night and hopefully soak up a few immigrants. Dorset or Kent probably. Beautiful Marbled, Oleander Hawk and something new for Britain would be nice ....
