Pretty poor of late generally. Strong NE winds and cooler night time temperatures have stifled progress. Also the breeding pair of Robins next door are stealing all moths that are not in the trap, so anything on the shed wall is eaten/taken to young before I see it. Worse still, Trent is streaking ahead in his Work-less Utopian bubble. At the last count, 14 species up and counting- so I've been sending his CV out to relevant companies in the hope of finding him a job. A night shift would be best, but anything would do. Trouble is, no-one seems to want him,......funny that.............
