|I am still very pleased with my pink eggbox - visited last night by this Brown-spot Pinion|
Moth numbers fell last night to the level where I can count them without getting muddled (I only just got grade 6 in O Level maths back in 1966). There were 23.

This was partly the result of a cold - but clear - night and the need to place the trap in an obscure spot so as not to disturb our latest guests. This worked, I am glad to say. One of the limits on moth trapping is that the Robinson trap, which is the most effective, is like a small-scale version of Beachy Head lighthouse. You need space and seclusion or very nice neighbours.

I'll identify later, as the demands of hospitality call. It seems odd but English weather is legendarily changeable and we are apparently expecting gales. But I have something different line-up for tomorrow's post.

micro below are Ancylis achatana. Fingers crossed...
|Flounced Rustic methinks|
|Another - but different (Update: or not?) - small grey gentleman (or woman)|
