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.

My first day-flying moths of the year today. Didn't realise it was a day-flying species actually - they fly at night as well - but several flying around oaks on Syderstone Common in my lunch break - Winter Shade Tortricodes alternella.
Winter Shades Tortricodes alternella, Syderstone Common, 13th March
Now I just need to find one at home - possibly the commonest moth flying in late winter that I've not seen at home yet.
