10 Macro species for January Challenge.

Hello Everyone,

With another New Year looming I thought I would once again do the Challenge of 'recording 10 macro species for January'. It's not an easy challenge, but then, it wouldn't be much of a challenge if it was too easy, would it. See how you get on,
I'll ask you all for your results at the end of January (please send them even if you don't get 10 species as it all goes towards building up the larger picture), then I'll post the results on the blog in February. Good luck.

All the best,

Merry Christmas!

Wishing everyone a very happy Christmas.


Christmas greetings

Hello all moth-ers - I hope you all have a great Christmas and New Year - let's hope that 2013 is a bit drier for us - surely, it couldn't be wetter than this year, could it!!

But there are still some moths about. I recorded this very early Dotted Border on the 21st December. It beats the previous early record for the county by 12 days.

All the best.

Happy Christmas


to all my fellow MMG "mothers".

The other week whilst turning some xmas tree decorations in my workshop a plume moth {amblyptilia acanthodactyla} chose to adorn my unfinished tree. So much better than a fairy don't you agree.
