Description:

Seems a bit silly uploading such an easily identified species but it was six years (to the day) since I have trapped one of these so just in case I have gone completely moth-blind confirmation of ID appreciated.

Dear David, Happy Anniversary

Dear David,

Happy Anniversary ! What a coincidence.
I must say I am envious on several accounts; not only of trapping this beautiful creature twice, but also of your obvious meticulous record keeping !

Best wishes,

Pat

Recording

Pat,

I use some recording software called MapMate (http://www.mapmate.co.uk/) to keep records. It certainly makes remembering what has been seen several years ago, and sharing data with recording schemes, a lot easier.
