A good night last night and my first Feathered Rannunculus since 2011 and first Red Underwing since 2012 .I was a bit worried about the Rannunculus status locally , very pleased to get this one last night.

Some good moths and nice photo's Andy/Colin.
Not managed any mothing last 2 nights - hope to give it a go tonight. Concerned about electrics when it rains as not got anything to cover it. What do you do ?

Great moths there Andy/Col,still never seen Feathered Ranunculus down Todmorden way ,great time of Year for Mothing. Not sure what your Trap Electrics are Dave,but a transparent seed tray top from garden centres works well you might have to put some small stone etc to keep it in place if wind picks up.regards Bri.
