Thought I'd go with this just to give you all a day off from the moths and to show I still keep my hand in with the birds........Feathered variety of course.

I'll be in and out most of the day, but rest assured I'll be looking at everyone's work sooner or later in my capacity as GE this week.

Right!.....First job I have to do is go and sort out the traps full of moths which I caught last night, had a quick look at 7am this morning and there was well over a 100 specimens to count, all pretty much the usual suspects, but you can guarantee if there's anything in there I haven't posted before it will be up here fairly soon Grin Many thanks for all the comments on yesterday's image, I wasn't expecting it to be as popular as it was as it's very drab looking and unexciting, despite it's rarity.

Catch you all later.....Ade
