   Jochen Möhr reports from Metchosin, yesterday just two Autumnal Moths and one Winter Moth, and this morning four Autumnal Moths and one Winter Moth.  No photographs taken.


   Jeremy Tatum is still looking for specimens of Erannis – if you find one dead.  I’d prefer them not to be killed just for me.
