I'm flitting east and west at the moment while Clare and the kids enjoy the school holidays in Brechfa and I juggle work, our holiday guests (in Monmouthshire) and some family time. Luckily this gives me a chance to catch moths in both 'my' counties - I've got the MV on in Monmouthshire tonight but had 6 species at the Cnwc porch light last night. Yesterday morning I was pleased to find a female Emperor Moth waiting for me on our French windows. I left her carefully on the wall all day, but no male Emperors came to visit. The difference between the females that came to Jane's and my porches, and the male that came to Jacqueline's lure is quite striking. Either is a pleasure to see!
