I ended June with another couple of mothing sessions in the garden, both going till 1am and lasting a few hours each. The 1st session turned out 12 species and the 2nd a huge jump up to 27 species with the possibility of more not being trapped. I obtained a few new species to photograph and list too was a real bonus, so I am looking forward to July's sessions. The rose bush is still turning out Vapourer caterpillars ranging in size from near fully grown down to less than 10mm.
