27th June 2011.I don't care what the weather man says.....

We aborted the monthly Home Wood trapping on the basis of the severe weather warning. 25 to 50mm of rain with possible flash flooding and large hailstones. This was supposed to have hit us around 10.00pm but instead, it was very warm and humid with not a drop of rain until mid-day following.
In fact we missed the best mothing night of the year to date !
The garden traps/lights were switched on though for a good catch.
This garden first micro is huge, with a wingspan approaching 50mm. It normally inhabits reed beds so it was a surprise catch at The Dells.

  1. Where is the huge micro? It's must also be invisible- more string than a derro's belt I suspect!
