Weds 5 July 2017, Brownsea Island
Preliminary sampling of regenerating heathland at centre of the island with basic Heath trap yielded 23 Horse Chestnut, 17 True Lover's Knot, 7 Scarce Footman and micros Pempelia genistella (gorse specialist) and Ypsolopha nemorella which, on a night with a bright moon suggests good recovery/diversity.
