Oh well I've just spotted the new reduced size for photos (320 x 240) so will try this from this morning
EDIT Can hardly see the photo even when it's clicked on ! Big disappointement!
Hazel in the Gironde estuary, France
Can see it fine & well on my tablet H, expands to fit 10"x8" screen! Have had Chestnuts this year but don't recognise that name?

It's one you don't get (yet) but is slowly moving north. No English name . Glad it works on your tablet, I just get the standard size on the computer. Oh well, I'll post some more later, just for you! LOL
Gee thanks H, missing the moths already!
At long last I have read Jean-Henri's experiments with Great Peacock moths .... how very interesting!
Sorry Wendy, your post got lost on the forum!! I loved his writing style & as you say, very interesting. There are other stories on the same link but I haven't got around to reading them yet.
I had 2 traps last night as it was dryish & warmish!
At home I had 6 species including a rather worn "Gem"
& then went off to empty the other & found around 30 moths of 9 species. My favorite was the December Moth which was my reason for putting the trap in the woods
a Feathered Thorn
loads of Mottled Umber
& I'll put the rest on if this lot works. Fingers crossed!
Piece of cake !LOL Photos a bit big though.
Also had a Green Brindled Crescent
thats a better size 650-0
& a Sprawler
That's the best of them!
Has worked fine H ... super envious of your December Moth, one I really wanted to see ''live' but no traps here for a while as some really dodgy weather! Wet again tonight! Grrrrrrrr
Yes last night was my "window" of opportunity, weather not too good here either.
Yep, the December moth does look a fine moth.
In reply to Nigel O:
Thanks Nigel, it's not a big moth but has lovely colours & markings & if you're doing a live trap they come hurtling in at speed quite early on & are very impressive.
