I'm not dead least I don't think so. Winter is always a bit of a quiet time but being busy and taking part in the 1000for1ksq challenge have been taking up a bit too much time.

Anyway, I stuck the moth trap on last night in hope and had the first moth of the year in the trap!

Hebrew Character
I have also started trying to identify some micros - below is the 6th micro species I have seen - apparently Acleris umbrana which is meant to be a pretty good record! Beginners luck.....

Agonopterix heracliana
The 100for1ksq challenge has been forcing me to look at stuff I would previously have ignored. Below is (probably) Ashfordia granulata which if you look very closely has a hairy shell.... Who knew!
