hi there,
Not sure if you can help, but I came across some type of insect (maybe a form of moth, but not sure) and I was wondering if you could help me. If you go to my blog http://suchsmallwonders.blogspot.com
and have a look (part way down page) I'd really appreciate it.
Love your blog BTW--very intesting!

Hi all

Sorry I cannot make the trapping at Withens Clough, It's my girlfriends birthday and I don't think it would go down too well if I came along. Will have the trap going in the garden so hopefully get some results there.

Good luck
Chris
