Keeping the Blog Alive

Well, only just!  It was damp but mild here on Wednesday night so I put the 22W actinic trap outside the front door.  Five moths came along; 3 Winter Moths and 2 Mottled Umbers; all of them settled outside the trap, none ventured inside.  Not very exciting stuff, but still, it shows that there are some pretty moths around at this time of year:

  2. Just put the neighbours chooks away and saw a moth in my torch light, so popped the trap under the back porch, probably a waste of time.......watch this space!
