You will grow to learn that GMS nights are always poor for moths! at least thats how it seems. Winston.

Sallowing??? Not another weird "moth-ers" ritual?

charlie streets said...

Yes Nick, you've go to come naked and bring your own supply of birch twigs, moonlit nights are best............

Anyway, so far as mothing is concerned I'm the eternal optimist, I really am, but this sallowing lark, hmmmm - I await to be convinced.

Hi Charlie - Well, If I remember last year 1 macro, 1 micro and 1 toad! but am up for another go.

Nick - It will help if you come prepared, with as much as your body as possible smeared in lard.
I can also give you a lift from Midgely if you provide something to protect the seats.

Sallowing ...is meant to attract loads of moths to the flowering Sallows.we just stand there and wait to see if anything turns up or beat the branches and try and find some larvae.I think if the weather is good we might have better luck than last year but will wait till it improves.
