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.

Two more new micros

Though it didn't turn up anything quite so good as the day before, Friday 26th was a good night at home.  Two new micros for me: Sloe Flat-body Luquetia lobella and Beautiful Knot-horn Rhodophaea formosa.
