25th June 2011...Near perfect conditions disappoint.

With the warm humid conditions, the expected glut of year ticks didn't happen on a slightly disappointing evening,

Never mind, tonight looks even better with temps staying at 18 deg.

MAPLE PROMINENT 2009 year first

COMMON RUSTIC agg. year first this time ! BROAD-BORDERED YELLOW UNDERWING 2110 year first

I didn't expect to find a RED ADMIRAL under the shed blacklight

Garden totals to date :-

271 species...168 macro, 103 micro

The wine bet has taken a severe backward step as Captain Trappings weighed in with 12 + new ticks last night, putting me about 9 behind.

His twin 15watt actinic/BLB trap ("The Ratface".....the only garden trap you'll ever need...Cheap...economical to run...deadly ) certainly came into it's own last night as he left me floundering in his wake.
