    Checked on my 'Elephant' tonight, never looks anything but dead so I gently pressed his 'tummy' & he wiggled his tail!!!  Made me jump of course!

    Even tail wiggling isn't proof of living, I tried cutting steaks once from a freshly killed Sturgeon & every time I went through the spine it flapped it's tail. I was a bag of nerves by the time I finished! LOL

    Set up for tonight & just switched on my new 20W energy saving Blacklight bulb in laundry basket just outside front door with lead through cat door & plugged into mains!  Wonder if I'll get anything?  Gone a bit cool out there brrrrrrrr!

    well done Wendy, fingers crossed. I've put one out with 15W Blacklight so we'll have to compare notes tomorrow! It's about 12°C here now & dark in half an hour. Forecast for 1°C for the morning though.

    Not too bad, it got down to 3°C & was very dewy this morning. I had 11 moths of 6 species, but not a lot different.
