18 October 2012 - The Larches

Went to The larches this evening, a KWT reserve just near Detling. A relatively good catch, by recent standards, with Mallow, Pine Carpet, Frosted Orange and Merveille du Jour being teh highlights of the macros. Of the micros, only one actually gets named...

16 October 2012 - Leyboune Lakes

Spent a short while searching some Ivy flowers in teh hope of finding moths during weather that doesn't allow a trap to go out... One of the first moths was this Dark Chestnut - at least, I'm pretty sure it's a Dark Chestnut - 's' shaped wing and all that, but now a few doubts have entered my wee mind. Any comments much appreciated.
