June 6th 2011

Not on top of the world today so after clearing down Dave's moth trap I had a brief look at the pond with Bob finding first and second summer Yellow-legged Gull before spending most of the afternoon sleeping.
The last three nights have been ideal for moths and between our gardens Dave and I have trapped over a 1000 moths of 80 species including a count of 252 Heart and Dart which has kept Bob clicking away happily. One in Dave's trap caused a stir and had to be confirmed by the county recorder - Great Oak Beauty. Trapped on the 3rd June he then gets another last night - he can be such a tart sometimes.
