Who needs a moth trap when you have a head torch, a net, and warm still weather? The missus went to sleep early so I went for an impromptu half hour walk around the square, which turned out a cracking list of lovely creatures. Bizarrely the addition of Foxglove Pug prompted me to notice I hadn't recorded Foxglove, which has been in flower for a good while now!
Still, it looks like I'm back into the tight tete-de-la-course. Until Christian declares 1000 next week, that is ...
The list additions:

Nice one Ali, Great way to go mothing and clearly very productive.ReplyDelete
Excellent. Must be honest the trap makes me lazy with everything presented on a plate, well egg carton. Used to do lots of dusking and it's been ages. Must do some soon. I've been spurred onReplyDelete
Active searching also turns up other goodies. There's a woodlouse hunting spider that I see regularly on tree trunks at night but never anywhere else. Also Dromius quadrimaculatus suddenly appears to be abundant! The night is a different planetReplyDelete
