Moths from Cornwall Holiday August 2009

Our summer holiday last year saw us spend 2 weeks in a house in a very rural location down on the Lizard. Suffice to say we had a great time. I'm only just getting round to sorting out all the pics including the 14 moth species which were new to me - I didn't take the trap these were all attracted to the outside light.
