Two months in

White rabbits to you!  That's because it's the first of the month, though I haven't been trapping as we were back in Leeds and Bradford overnight. Here's a picture of the very fine crocus display on Little Moor near our sons' alma mater, Benton Park school.

The night before, a pair of Common Quakers rounded off February, the one on the right moist with tiny dewdrops because the weather turned rainy in the early hours. My moth tally after a eight nights of lighting the lamp trapping stands at a modest eight species: Chestnut, Clouded Drab, Common Plume (a micro), Common Quaker, Dotted Border, Hebrew Character, Pale Brindled Beauty and Satellite. The Dotted Border is the only one new to me here.
