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.

Ladybird saves the day (or night)

I was surprised to find the moth trap was devoid of moths last night, despite the mildness.  There was a single Dark Chestnut some way from the trap, but that was the only moth.

One notable record from the moth trap though: this Cream-spot Ladybird.  Not a particularly unusual species I don't think, but my first at North Elmham.

Cream-spot Ladybird, North Elmham, 17th December
