An unexpected find

At last I have won the battle with Google's and my computer's reluctance to allow me to post here!!!!!
My 92 year old Mother is in a local care home. She has a lifelong, knowledge and love of Natural History and has been following my Moth trapping with great interest. Today one of her carers pointed out a tiny moth high up on the wall (Mum is training them all to look for moths!) It turned out to be a Many Plumed Moth.
Common, but new to her and me and a source of great pleasure that she was able to add to my Moth List


  1. I meant of course, Twenty Plumed Moth.

  2. Great that you are now able to post on the blog Jane - and a nice photo too!

    Keep up the good work.

  3. Thank you Ian. I can blog and also start logging my catches too, a lot of work to catch up on, so look out for some What's this again? Emails!!!!

  4. Well done Jane and Mother. Nice moth.

  5. Possibly a silly question. Do you record these accidental finds?

  6. Yes please - one-off finds are useful to supplement trap records. Please don't add them to your main site spreadsheet though: best written down and emailed to me with date and grid reference at end of year. Thanks
