Hurcott, Wed 1st July

An interesting night at Hurcott where the temperature was still 19.5° at 2.00 a.m. We were plagued by flies, unsurprisingly, the closer to the water the worse it was, but a very good haul of micros - can't make my mind up if that was due to the excellent weather conditions or the site, maybe both. Just a taste below.

A visit by four police officers, following reports of 'bright lights and strange goings on' was added interest, my third such 'brush with the law' when out moth-ing. Aren't they young these days, thought they were school kids on works experience. I'm not getting old am I?   Patrick Clement

  1. I've also had similar brushes with the law, usually UFO sightings being reported. My best was at a reserve near Chequers when I was stopped by 2 army guys with assault rifles around 2am, with red lasers pointing directly at the heart. Quite effective in the pitch darkness, I can tell you.
