After a period of intense rain leading to flooding in many parts and gale force winds, my only surprise was that there were any moths at all left in these parts. Our lane turned into a small river over four inches deep and our stream was almost level with the banks. The Common Flat-body reminded me that several days ago I was moving a log stack to place it nearer the house when I disturbed well over 50 which had chosen that site in which to hibernate. They made a really good attempt at dive bombing me!

16/17 November 2016: total 22 species 9, (Min 4.9C, Max 8.7C, wind 9mph WSW, cloud 35%). I can remember my old friend Colin Pratt, the Sussex Moth Recorder, reassuruing me years ago that everyone suffers from a blind spot from time to time, and so it proved yesterday. The mystery moth was actually a well-marked specimen of a Variable Smudge Ypsolopha ustella and I would like to thank both Kim Leaver and Marek for putting me right. By the way Marek, I like your web site (Marek Moths) - your son has done a really good job on it.

I think I am suffering from almost total exhaustion. A short time ago I got someone to cut down six leylandii trees at the bottom of the garden. All had been topped out by a previous owner at about 25ft and they were all multi-trunked. After heavy use of my log splitter, I now have in excess of 5,000 logs, all stacked under cover to season for probably the next couple of years. Hard work, I can tell you, but there is a lot of free heat there for the future.

What is it about this village. I was asked yet again last night in the pub if I am growing marijuana in the garden. That so many people should associate moth lights with drug substances is quite hilarious. My response is always to ask them if they want any and the reply is always the same - only if it is free! Hells bells, what have we landed in! But, I digress....

On the downside, the promised "super large" moon could not be seen through the clouds.

26/27 October 2016: total 28 species 12, (Min 5.9C, Max 6.8C, wind 3mph N, cloud 35%). Last night was, for me, quite remarkable. I have only ever recorded Merveille du Jour in singletons before and so when five turned up I am left wondering if there is a local population - they were all in pristine condition and there has been very little wind for the past two days.

When I say there was very little wind I do wish the weather forecasters would pull their fingers out. AcuWeather was saying that there was a 3mph wind from the north, whilst BBC weather thought it was 5 mph from the west. make up your minds chaps!

What last night lacked in numbers was more than made up with the quality of two of the moths - a pristine Green-brindled Crescent and a glorious Clifden Nonpareil. This latter moth was last encountered by me two years ago in Sussex when I managed to raise one from an egg and another from a pupa, both given to me by a friend. These moths are really strong fliers and this one when released flew like a bird!
