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.

4th for Norfolk

The end of February didn't bring many more moths - Pale Brindled Beauty and Chestnut on Thursday night and Pale Brindled Beauty last night.

I have a few dissections to do from last summer.  Did 3 Coleophora from July and one turned out good.  It was a Black-bindweed Case-bearer Coleophora therinella.  It's the fourth record for Norfolk, my second.

The other two I did were Grey Rush Case-bearer Coleophora glaucicolella, one of each gender.
