Latest from The Dells trap

It's been a little warmer of late so I fired up the trap (4 x 11w PL actinic).
Nothing new but nice to catch a few moths.
The highlight of the week wasn't a moth but a much bigger flyer. A Peregrine gliding over the garden at about  60 ft.
I was attracted to it by the crows, who were noisily mobbiing it, and the clucking of the local Jackdaws.
It soon got fed up with it's tormentors and sped off to the north west.
