This is Martin's thread Ian!

I am sure he will understand as threads do tend to go slightly off topic sometimes.

No problem high jacking thread I like stream trains.
Not done very well with the moths just lately but here are some of the nice ones I have caught. It really is amazing what is around the garden I have caught 52 different species so far in the garden since starting on June 9th

Super moths you are trapping and photographing Martin!

You are doing well with 52 so far, only around another 2,000 to go then!:

Moths are fascinating creatures.

Highlights of the moth trap on Sunday morning were 60+ Large Yellow Underwing, 3 Brimstone and a delightful Canary-shouldered Thorn.
