GOTCHA!!!

Team kent was out again targeting BARRED TOOTH STRIPE a very scarce moth in kent,on our 2nd vist to the coast after our last zero catch,this time it was me david and len with alan not being able to come,so three traps set pretty close together,by seven oclock still no sign,with the call of nature need i headed off as i was wandering back i noticed a geo with it wings closed on a privet so i took a closer look and it started flying so a quick swish of the net i bagged it,taking a closer look it was a BARRED TOOTH so headed back to the others with my goal in the net,upon getting back and showing the others  
the 2nd moth came to the trap job well done by team kent
