  1. That is a lot of moths, did you ID them all yourself or where you in a group with a few moth specialists. Im surprised you haven't gone for the Purple Heron yet are you thinking of going some time soon or waiting for one to turn up at Stithianes. Good to see you doing other stuff then birding.
