Observations: The almost windless conditions provided a rare opportunity to count divers and other birds resting on the sea, so we checked the sea area from Revtangen - Reve kai with the telescope. The count included 87 Great Northern Loons, 5 Red-throated Loons, 180 Common Scoter, 200 Long-tailed Ducks, 8 Razorbill, 7 Common Guillemot and 20 Black Guillemot.


We tried two Robinson-traps last night but only 3 species of moths caught, includingh this Powdered Quaker (Orthosia gracilis). Punktseljefly. 


A long awaited addition to the lepidoptera list at Revtangen BO: This Emperor Moth (Saturnia pavonia) was attracted with a pheromone-lure. Nattp√•fugl√łye.


A new species of Long-horn Beetle at Revtangen BO was dicovered on a furled-up mistnet, Rhagium inquisitor. Bartrel√łper.
