Garden Catch up........

A few highlights from the last week. The 19th June was certainly the best night of the year so far with 35 species accounted for. Since then, stormy conditions have set in once again and the catch has reverted from decent to rubbish again. Tomorrow night (23rd) I'm meant to be setting up some equipment for a moth-ing demo at Marston Vale Millennium Park for National Moth Night, I may also pack a wind-break and snorkel!
