WendyBartter said: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!

In reply to HAZY:
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

I will live in hope that he is still with us! Can't wake him up yet, too too early!

No you just have to be patient, not my strong point! 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.
7° here but maintaining 5° or 6° through the night with light south westerlies! Good luck H!
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.
Ooooh! Look forward to seeing your pics H!
My photoshoot was nonexistent, even my lone mozzie didn't hang about to have his picture tooked!! Grrrr, was chilly & foggy!
Twas foggy here too, & I was too lazy to take piccies, sorry! Nothing different to the last few days.
