Only the 9-10th record of STEPHEN'S GEM for the UK, with 2 of the records on Scilly! Bob Dawson
In the last few weeks, it's been pretty quiet on Scilly. However, two days ago, 14th, Mick trapped a STEPHEN'S GEM in his garden at Longstones. Bob Dawson and I went to have a look at this second mega for Scilly. I also saw the first one that was also trapped in Mick's garden 10 years ago to almost the day, 7th July, 2002.
