Micros at last

Although not that many, but the garden did give me a new one. This lovely Caloptilia rufipennella!

I even managed to get it to pose on a leaf for me. It's just a pity this was only one of four moths caught - the others being 1 x Emmelina, 1 x Brindled Pug and 1 x White-shouldered House Moth. Not thrilling considering the conditions...I guess the rain has put off a lot of the early May moths?

Hopefully the weather will improve for Thursday night where we're holding a moth night at work, and then Saturday when we're off to Carr Wood for our second trapping session.

Fingers crossed...
