  1. Almost time to think about constructing your igloo Nanook !
    Down here in the tropics of Bedfordshire we are still catching Dark Arches, Vine's Rustics and Large Nutmegs...unbelievable !

  2. Hi Trent, theres not much left up here to catch now, so trapping will be very sporadic. There are only so many December Moths to look at.....
