Nothing much on the Moth front except to say had an oddity this week with this sighting indoors, Larvae feeds on acorns and leaves it when fully fed. Perhaps the most likely explanation is a larva crawling indoors. They would normally hibernate as a larva and pupate in the spring. Obviously not a natural occurrence, but a very interesting record none the less.

As you would probably guess mothing was cancelled last Friday as it is tonight due to the very cold conditions, roll on spring.
