Slow progress

Things are still slow trapping here in my Aylesbury garden, but numbers are gradually rising and a few new species caught over the last week include Iron prominent, Swallow prominent, Pale tussock, Heart and dart, Small clouded brindle, Mullein, Chocolate-tip, Common swift and a pristine female Peppered moth - only the second i,ve ever had! I've also been rearing Black arches larvae and Frosted green larvae successfully so far. Dave Maunder
