Jardín Botánico Hoya de Pedraza, Sierra Nevada, Granada Province, Spain.
A nights Moth recording with friends old and new.
The night is coming.
I left Pam and John to their own devices for the night and headed up the Sierra Nevada to the Jardín Botánico Hoya de Pedraza, on the way up I saw Dave Grundy's Van on the side of the road so stopped and had a chat with hime before we headed up to the parking spot at the gardens where we met Miguel Olvera and then later José Antonio Hódar Correa, José Miguel Barea and others, some who arrived late in the day.
The early check of the MV bulbs.
Dave had earlier set two traps above this site at 2100m and in the gardens we set up 6 more traps of various types.
Later in the day.
Later after having our food we checked the trap with the sheet which was nearest to the buildings and then turned in, Moths to follow in the next post.
