Little doing

I find negatives quite interesting and therefore am reporting that after about a week of inactivity re moths, I lit the lamp last night at Thrupp, Oxon, on what seemed a promising, mild evening. This morning saw a heavy frost on the ground and just two Early Greys, one Clouded Drab and one Common Quaker in the eggboxes. Judging by the relative paucity of recent posts, I guess others may be finding the same? And presumably it's because of chilly nights?  Martin Wainwright


  1. Hi Martin, maybe we should follow David Ferguson's example and seek out the day-flying moths instead! A good excuse to get out in the sunshine.

  2. That's a very good idea Steve. I'm much enjoying the Brimstones and Orange Tips at the moment - and a Brimstone moth in the trap last night cheered me - my first this year all v best M
