Cold autumn mothing

A rather cold night and the day wasn't much warmer. Put the moth trap out overnight and 31 moths of 15 species present this morning, including two new for the year, Heath Rustic and The Sallow, both very much autumnal moths.

  2. Fair comment - pink it is then. Oh all right I'll use a boring grey ;-)
