Scaly / Slimey

The 80W actinic was on all night, producing a massive ..... 1 of 1.

It's not all bad though, as the lone attendant was a first for the year Dotted Border.

Nothing else at the windows either, apart from the Agonopterix heracliana that was there before the trap went on.

The trap is back on again tonight, complete with a newly aquired 100W tungsten after the original bulb popped a few weeks back. Tomorrow night looks to be a superb opportunity for getting out mothing - if I get the car back from an overdue service and get away from work at a reasonable time.

The garden is pretty much waterlogged after a fair bit of recent rain, so no surprises that a few other bits are starting to appear. We get a lot of frogs through the spring and summer, though we have no pond. Various neighbours do have ponds though so I'm sure our first individuals are just coming away from the exertions of spawning. Also a few molluscs out and about in the damp evenings.
