For the last 2 weeks the weather has been doing its very best to stop me from putting a trap out, I have managed to get a trap out for a few odd hours on various nights but I have mainly been stuck with just putting the MBT lamp on the window ledge. Apart from a few micros I haven't seen or caught anything until tonight when I was very pleased to see a Mottled Umber resting on the window...it wasn't so pleased to see me and it took 25 minutes to get it to 'pose' for the photo but well worth the effort if it means I have another moth to add to my list!! :0)

I had a great time at the Derbyshire & Nottinghamshire Entomological Society(DANES) annual insect show last Saturday, it was good to meet a few of the people who have been helping me with ID confimation etc.....it's always nice to put a face to an email address!!. I'm really looking forward to attending their trapping events next year as well as any other events I can get to, all the details are on their website http://www.danes-insects.org.uk/index.htm
Anyway as I haven't had anything apart from a rather lonely and sorry looking Silver-Y recently I thought I would share my favourite photos from my catches since I got back into 'serious' trapping 5 months ago, I'm guessing I wont be catching much between now and new year but I will be trying and if anything interesting does turn up I will be sure to share it with you.
