The Dales / Re: Caving suit hire
« Last post by tim.rose2 on Yesterday at 06:46:51 pm »
Cracking trip down Sell Gill yesterday with 'uncle Tony'.  This was Tony's second ever caving trip, the other being Swildon's on Mendip a few years ago.  Both only agreed to after sufficient red wine!  Thanks to Mike from Yorkshire Dales Guides for lone of the over suit and Richard from back home for the SRT kit.  The quote after the trip... "I'm glad I've done it, enjoyed it but won't be taking up caving as a hobby.  You two are mad."  More red wine and I'm certain Tony will be back underground with us again.

Thought I'd share a few of the photo's...

Cave Science / Re: Underground moths
« Last post by Pitlamp on Yesterday at 05:40:43 pm »
Yes, seen tissue moths in the Dales but no heralds yet.

I tend to notice these because for some time I've been reporting them to David Hodgson, who sadly passed away earlier this year. David studied them for over 5 decades and ran a BCRA field meeting at Scoska Cave in recent years which partly focussed on these insects.

David left a valuable archive of data in connection with his studies, which we hope will eventually be made available at some stage.

If you're seriously interested Mike, send me a PM and I can tell you a bit more.
