Off piste-but only just.

Least Black Arches

Dark Sword-grass
Last night myself and John Rutter did a couple of hours trapping on Lord Howick's estate, not far from home. After the poor weather last week and the slow results from the garden it was a last minute decision to go ahead...

We used a 125w mv Robinson and a 160w blended bulb over a sheet.

The Least Black Arches was the earliest in the county by 2 days.
