Quietening down

Things really are getting a bit fag-endish now (though I hope that if I say that, the moths may lay on a few fireworks when I put the trap out for Bonfire Night). Not many more regular species remain to make their debut for 2016 although one of them, the December Moth, always fills me with happiness when I sit in slumbering away in its chocolatey fur coat.

Today's moth is a Large Wainscot, although actually not a particularly large one. Otherwise, there was little of interest in the eggboxes, although Ben's correction of my mis-guess in the last post means that I have another completely new species in my garden records: the micro-moth Eucosma obumbratana.

Finally, here's an appropriate firework for Guy Fawkes. Boom!
