Cold nights have meant that there's not been much of interest to report from ther moth trap. I had a walk over the downs at the KWT Reserve at Lydden on Saturday. Hardly any butterflies now but a couple of Wheatears perched on fence posts and it's the time of year for the Ivy Bees to emerge form their underground nests. They were numerous on the chlk hillside in the area of ancient grassland. I did get a poor handheld photo of the lunar eclipse the other night. This time the clear skies meant perfect viewing conditions.
