One Dark Chestnut in the trap and one Spring Usher (a new species for my garden) on the shed next to the trap.

Whitefield, Wiveliscombe - 8.30pm

I left the actinic light on at our conservatory window this evening and was delighted to attract a Spring Usher and also a Dark Chestnut.

Assisting a novelist
I've had an email from someone at Bath Spa University as follows:

"I am currently studying for an MA in Creative Writing at Bath Spa university, and am in the process of writing a novel which includes a character who is a Lepidoptera enthusiast. As such, I would very much appreciate the chance to learn more about Lepidoptera and to have the chance to speak to someone who is involved with your society.

I live in Bath and, unfortunately, do not have a car! So if you know of anyone in Bath (or somewhere accessible by public transport) who would be happy to give me half an hour of their time, that would be wonderful."

Is anyone in the Bath district able to help?

If so, please contact me initially.

BUGFEST SW
As a result of an article in the Western Gazettte last Thursday I have had a request for an SMG stand at the 2009 Bugfest SW which will take place on 21st February but unfortunately I will be in Birmingham that weekend.

Is anyone out there interested in representing SMG?

I have said that I will go in 2010 if the event is repeated!

Anyone interested please contact me by 31st January.

Many thanks

John Bebbington

I'm surprised how infrequently I see some common moths in Taunton. This was the first Early Moth here since 2004. Time flies...

Whitefield, Wiveliscombe

This has been the most prolonged cold spell we have experienced in the ten years we have been here and it was not until last night that we saw our first 2009 moth at an actinic light in a window - a single Winter Moth.
