Passenger - Dysgonia algira

Passenger, 21/9/06, St Margarets, Tony Morris
Tony commented, "When I caught this on National Moth Night 2006 I thought that it was the 13th British record. However 2006 was an amazing year with 13 records to add to the previous 12. I think this still made the top 20, but missed out on being best moth of the NMN".
Passenger, 11/9/06, Dungeness, Dave Walker
In keeping with Tony's comment above, this Passenger was also a top catch for Dungeness BO in 2006!
