Dear Douglas and Jenny,
Below is the moth list we accumulated in 11-18th June and 20-27 August 2011, a total of 92 larger moths and 9 micro moths. This really is an impressive total for two weeks, and made a large contribution to our enjoyment of the time we had in the Cabin. Indeed, putting this list together has brought back many pleasant memories.
Hope this is of interest, if things go well we intend to return next year.
Best Wishes, Ian and Andrea Brown
