Down in Oxfordshire weather is less of a problem, but fear of upsetting neighbours is rate limiting. Nevertheless I am keen to get the trap out at least once a month, and last Saturday I caught 29 moths, representing 8 species
An interesting moth was Blair's shoulder-knot. This is is recent immigrant to the UK, being first found by Dr Kenneth Blair in 1951 on the Isle of Wight, to where he had retired. At one time he was assistant curator at the Natural History Museum, and President of the Royal Entomological Society.
