Last night turned very cold but had some moths non the less, we also went out on our usual Friday Night Mothing and turned out much better than expected, Below is the list from the garden last night. Nothing new so no pictures I’m afraid but will try again tonight in the hope it doesn’t get so cold. Will post some pictures tomorrow of my excursion today looking for Adders with my mate John.
