Dark side

That pointer to autumn, Darth Vader, has arrived in the Robinson trap here. I mean the Black Rustic, whose shape and colour bring the Star Wars villain to mind. There were two yesterday morning, one in the eggboxes and the other - above - on a wall nearby. On Friday night, meanwhile, the trap had an excursion to a lovely cottage between Minster Lovell and Worsham where Mary Elford had organised a moth meeting of the West Oxfordshire Field Club. She brought her actinic trap too and we had an
excellent catch including large numbers of Snouts and the Oak Hook-tip and Feathered Gothic, below.  Martin Wainwright, Thrupp, Oxon
