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.

Last night's moths were few in number and there was just the one micro among them.  But that was Copper-tipped Ermel Pseudoswammerdamia combinella, a new moth for me.

Earlier I had come across this Cinereous Groundling Bryotropha terrella flying round the garden.

This colourful little beetle appeared at my study window while I was working from home today, my first Common Malachite Malachius bipustulatus.
