Thanks to AC for organising  evening


Weather


The weather was still and warm with occ breeze temperature circa 15 -17 o C. Lots of Midges . and it soon became obvious why the Mountain Rescue Team who where training nearby had nets on their heads A slow start but with an interesting and steady input.


Habitat


Andy had spotted a decent section of mixed Bilberry Heather with surrounding Birch Fern and other vegetation which paid off with one of the first incomings being a Beautiful Snout 

4 where in attendance on Norland Moor AC GW DS and CD. Two species of Caddis arrived but these where not recorded due to dwingdling membership of the Caddis Club
