12th Aug...Wine bet taken to new (low) level !

overnight min temp:- 14.4 deg
calm...humid...early morning rain...soaking traps
Captain Trappings has resorted to sneaky tactics.....after falling behind in the Great Wine Bet for the most garden species in a year, he has managed to entice/kidnap/lure/sweet-talk County Micro Recorder David Manning to check every leaf on every plant/shrub/tree in his garden and took great delight in telling me that another 20 or so micro moths will be added to his list as a result of the leaf mines found.
This bar-raising dastardly tactic will put me in third place, with Daylight second, so a stepping up of night patrols will be the order of the day, at least until my begging letter arrives on Mr M's doormat !
60 species recorded last night with only one year first entry, Cacoecimorpha pronubana, Carnation Tortrix, a common micro at The Dells.
My garden list for the year has now reached 380 and my early season target of 400 now looks very modest.
