Bolonia, Cadiz Province, Spain.

Moth Count.
A very firey sun rise over Morocco.

Dave and I were out on the area where we had set the traps the night before before dawn, over night the weather had got worse and by dawn it was windy, cool and we dodged the odd heavy shower.
7579 Isturgia spodiaria.
The traps did well and in the six we recorded 162 moths of 39 species, several of which I had not seen before and they included 
7583 Rhoptria asperaria.
