Les mites en France et un grand carp

40lb 4oz Mirror Carp

A fishing trip to France gave me the chance to trap a few moths that I wouldn't normally see. The lake I went to was in the Limousin region; beautiful, rural and populated from what I could tell by about 3 people.

As the sunset 50+ White Wagtails would gather and roost in the trees by the lakeside and Barn Owls from the local village Church would set out over the fields.

Feathered Gothics were the most numerous moth. In general numbers of
 moths were low with chilly nights down to 10 deg C.
