Moths and Bowls

Ground Weevil, Barynotus obscurus
On August 5th I did my Mill Hill transect, then visited the Steyning Bowls Club to give a short talk to the members about Sussex Search and Rescue. The Bowls Club made us their charity beneficiary for the proceeds from the day's raffle and tombola. They were a very welcoming group, I enjoyed the experience and SusSAR appreciate their support.
  Afterwards I visited Steyning Downland and found plenty of moths.
