Moth trapping results
We expanded our moth trapping locations during 2013, visiting Bevercotes Pit Wood and both Eaton Wood and Gamston Wood near Retford. We continued to trap at our usual sites in the Sherwood Forest area.

Included in the results are details of site used and weather conditions during trapping. Most nights also include brief summaries.
