Orange Sallow

I'm pretty fond of the Sallows and Orange Sallow in particular so it was nice to see my first of the year this morning in a trap I leave out at work each night at CEH in Crowmarsh Gifford, Wallingford.  Other than that things have been pretty poor recently, species lists dropping quicker than the temperature which felt particularly low last night. The only thing keeping me entertained is counting all the Large Yellow Underwings that seem to take great pleasure in hiding in amongst the vegetation around the trap whilst those in the trap all seem to cram together in groups on the egg cartons - I had 24 in just 2 dimples in one egg carton the other day. Marc Botham, Didcot
