Whetstone Leics. Update

Corr - look at this one ....


Trouble is it was trapped by me in a garden - but not my garden. I think a rule change is in order! Anyway, after a great week away in the highlands I'm only slowly getting back into garden mothing. I think there is going to be problem after next week with late nights watching world cup football not being conducive to early mornings emptying moth traps. Not sure if I'm hoping for great football and pants weather or vice-versa!

Since getting back, I've managed to add another 31sp to take me up to 152. Seems like I'm missing a few but, to put into context, at this point last year I'd just scraped a round 100. Here's the latest additions.
