|Small Mottled Willow - yet another one! 2015 has been a very good year for this migrant.|
|Twenty years ago; Tree-lichen Beauty was a major league rarity - in 2015, they|
are a "gimme" in any Thanet moth trap during the late-summer/autumn.
|Acrobasis mamorea (?) - a local species associated with coastal habitat in the south-east|
|Psuedargyrotoza conwagana - a common species associated with Ash and Privet. I'd never|
knowingly seen one until this little chap was discovered on the egg boxes.
|Agriphilia tristella - I'm really starting to enjoy these Crambids|
I love playing around with mathematical data, it's almost an art form? Don't see it? - Speak to an accountant! Playing games with numbers will produce whatever result you desire - just look at the spirited defence, offered by the tobacco industry, to counter the anti-smoking lobby! One, in eight, smokers die of lung cancer - turn it around? Seven out of eight don't - genius. Russian roulette with cigarettes - don't smoke & never have, thankfully! I wonder what the stats are for Stella Artois drinkers?
|Harry in bed in my study (our spare room) the effects of "Chicken Pox" still|
|All the way from Alice Springs - you're having a laugh!|
Quite likely from the same aviary as the Margate Cemetery
(Redwing - the initial id) Dusky Thrush intergrade?
|An Ichneumon Wasp - beyond this I'm out of my depth. In the moth trap this morning!|
