Craggs Friday

A good search for Devon Carpet larvae proved fruitless this time ,but the swarms of biting midges hampered progress, will have better luck next time im sure.The larvae we did find were not leps.!!! A good couple of hours with the traps before the rain.-------Another Blackneck proves Calderdale is a good spot for this species.
