A diary of my mothing activity covering highlights and photos from my moth trapping activities. Mainly Norfolk (UK), occasionally beyond. I may mention other wildlife sightings here, especially insects, but for birds see my birding diary.

First bug of the year

A check for moths yesterday evening revealed only 1 Chestnut but something on the gutter caught my eye.  It was a Common Green Shieldbug Palomena prasina in its not-so-green winter attire.  The first I've seen here and my first bug this year.

In the morning the trap held 2 Early Moths, 2 Spring Ushers and another Chestnut.
