All Quiet on the Home Front

There's been very little to the garden twin-30wt actinic light over the past week or so apart from a few flies, midges and ichneumon wasps, not really surprising now that the weather has turned decidedly colder.  However, last night I did find a freshly-emerged female Epiphyas postvittana on the inside of one of our conservatory windows.  The moth can be recorded at any time of year but this appears to be the first I personally have seen in January - thankfully it doesn't yet appear here in huge numbers.
