Moving house

Lack of recent updates is due to the fact that I'm in the middle of moving up to Norfolk.

I put the moth trap on last night in the garden for the first time in a little while due to a run of rubbish weather. Not a bad haul, 43 species in total, 3 year ticks including Vines Rustic, Cabbage and best of all, a real surprise...A Dotted Footman! According to Waring & Townsend this moth is nearly confined to Norfolk Broads but was found at Ham Fen in the late 19th and early 20th century, looks like its back/still there!!
I also had a pug and a micro which are both new, to be id'd at a later date.
Also recently had an Old Lady in the toilet block (not as dodgy as it first sounds!) as well as a red underwing and an Orange swift, also the attractive bug Corizus hyoscyami was found pretty much in my garden which was a nice find.

I'll be offline for a few days but will re-emerge as yet another Norfolk Blog in the not too distant future.
