    Moth ID help, Scotland

    Not sure about the Drab. Clouded is much commoner in Scotland. Use this site to see if there are any records from where you were catching http://www.mothrecording.org/index.php?c=info&m=spinfo_all&mm=spinfo_all Cheers, Lee

    Golden Eagles over Callander

    I've seen Red Kite, Buzzard, Peregrine and Osprey over Callander, never a Golden Eagle. Would be interested in photos if you have them. Best bird ever here was the Barrow's Goldeneye which overwintered in 2006

    Are these both Brindled Pugs (Glos)

    If I'd have caught them in my garden I'd have gone for Brindled Pugs too, but not an expert by any means

    Moth ids confirmation Scotland

    Thanks for the quick confirmation. I have set up an account to log records at http://www.mothrecording.org. For each macro species you can view a map of the UK which shows you each tetrad it has been recorded in. When you add a record to a tetrad that a species has not been recorded in before...
