Joining the Clifden club.

Lurking beneath the last egg box wings already aquiver this magnificent beast flew off around the trees a couple of times before disappearing into the undergrowth. Nothing had prepared me for the size of the Clifden Nonpareil. Hope it makes a return visit!.

  1. wow Steve..that's a co-incidence..what time did it fly off? You'll see why in my post

  2. Departure time 9.15. Possible but improbable I would have thought but we're only about 100 yards apart as the moth flies.

  3. Perhaps it's now gone off to have lunch with Martin Townsend and then will go on to take the Hop on hop off tour of Oxford?

    But I agree - the time on my photo is 9.35 - so it would have been 9.30am at the latest I found it quietly resting in the trap - and you said it it went off into the undergrowth rather than going up. My one went off over the road and is now up in a tree in Library farm.
