During the 4 days June 14-17 I had 46 moth species, 2 caddisfly species and a water beetle. The vast majority were the species Heart and Dart. 
The photos are mostly poor because my main camera is away for repair and will be for some time as vital spare parts are not available in the UK. I am learning to use another camera and my phone so hopefully photos will improve as I get to grips with new techniques.
