Thanks for the offer Andy but to be honest I feel a bit of a burden at times always having to rely on other folk for lifts.I'll carry on moffing local for now, I've got some interesting projects I want to explore this spring and summer.

Good luck with Friday though, it should be a good turnout by the sounds of it and Brian always seems to turn up something good - why don't you have a go at rearing those larvae through that he found, there's a bit on UK moths about it if you click on "show detail" at the bottom of the species page.

Cracking weather today and saw my first butterfly of the year on the allotments - one Peacock.
