The garden moth list is now up to 15 with a few expected new for years. Still no Acleris here. I used to get winter Acleris moths quite regularly when based at Beddington Farmlands during the winter but even at the Old Vicarage they were not regular in winter, so presumably a bit of a London heat anomaly thing.
I had a look back at some photos of the ones I used to get at Beddington with a fresh eye since having Nick Asher's book and the latest version of the Micro-moths bible. A few notes below on winter Acleris that have been on this blog.
Not much else has happened this week, I caused chaos on the M25 on Wednesday after the van drive shaft broke on the M25/A3 junction. It took me all day to get the van to the mechanics and get back to Wood Street.
Off to Madeira tomorrow for a week family holiday (and some stealth WP twitching). Been far too long since I got off this maddening island so very much looking forward to a break.
