Whetstone Leics. Slacking

Here's a well overdue update.

In September I have mainly been not trapping when the weather wasn't great, and not trapping last week when the weather was great 'cause I was working in France. Hence not too much going on to get excited about, and disappointingly when I have had the trap out I've missed out on anything like Vestal that has turned up in other Leics. gardens this year. Also starting to feel like having missed the best week in the month I'm maybe going to miss out on one or two expected species (Sallow, Pink-barred Sallow, Black Rustic, Frosted Orange all yet to appear in my garden traps this year, but trap is out again tonight and I still a chance). Pleased and slightly dismayed about last nights catch though; whilst I added nine species, a few of those were 'end of season' markers. Up to 425 now, with another couple of species new for the garden.
