Andy..thats always the problem with light trapping when its aranged in advance as conditions are invariably poor on the night.

I suspect that if you went round the wood today in daylight you would find more species in the larva state and adults that had been blown from the trees. Its still blowing strong here today so I shall head inland to try and find a sheltered wood to work through.

I still have it Andy but don't really know what I'm looking for on it. I don't think it's worth sending Harry so I might dissect it myself (bound to end in disaster :-))))
