  1. Hi Stewart......Nice Pine Beauties you've been catching...very early. I had one last year on 29th April, but it seems like everything is early this year. I'm a little envious of your Dotted Borders, so far they are steering clear of suburban Biggleswade

  2. Cheers Trent, I'm sure Dotted Border will come your way soon. I would swap you for an Oak Beauty...
