November is currently cold. May trap again if it gets milder again but otherwise this is the last post this year. Whether I continue next year I haven’t decided. From experience with my main blog insects in general don’t attract much interest. If I do I’ll try to be more current.

    For what it’s worth I follow your moth postings fairly avidly. I am very much a beginner with moths and also live in Cottingham – I have also bothered you with some IDs through twitter. Comparing your catches to my spots is always interesting. Thanks.
