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.
Common Green Shieldbug, North Elmham, 15th February
In the morning the trap held 2 Early Moths, 2 Spring Ushers and another Chestnut.
