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.

Swallow Prominent

The last 3 nights have been cool and clear and moth numbers have been low.  Tuesday night scraped a Brindled Beauty and my first Swallow Prominent of the year, but it's been dire apart from that.

The rest were Small Quaker, 2 Hebrew Characters and Early Grey on Monday night, 2 Clouded Drabs, 3 Hebrew Characters and Early Grey on Tuesday night and Early Thorn, Clouded Drab, 2 Hebrew Characters and 2 Early Greys last night.

No doubt the sunny days would have produced a few more interesting insects had I not been working, but I did manage Holly Blue, Peacock and Small Tortoiseshell in my lunch break on Tuesday.
