Here are two of the Mottled Umbers from last night, like nearly all of this month's moths, settled near the trap not inside it.

Apologies for cross-posting the rest of this post with my birding diary... I've seen a mouse in my garden on numerous occasions, often going in or out of the shed (where it eats my bird food) but have never managed to have a sufficiently prolonged look at it to be able to identify it. On Saturday afternoon I kept seeing it dart out of the shed and back in, with perhaps a couple of minutes between each dash. Far too quick to see anything on it, but perhaps I could catch it on the camera? Even with the ISO cranked up to the highest possible setting I could barely get enough speed to catch it mid-dash, but eventually it paused for long enough on its way out of the shed for me to get some grainy shots. Let me know if you think differently, but I reckon it's a Wood Mouse.
