The weather has been a bit windy with constant winds of 15 -25mph winds. There have been impresive waves hitting the island and an almost constant taste of salty spray in the air.
I'm mostly stuck indoors report writing at the moment but I still go for the odd walk about. The weather has been good apart from the wind. The sun has been out most of the time.
If you can find a sheltered spot there are good numbers of Butterflies to watch.
I still have the moth trap out every night and when the wind drops a little , trapping can be quite productive. Another Angled Shades was trapped in the moth trap the other day. These stunning moths can be caught from April through to December.
The moth highlight of the season was to come on 12th. This moth is a Pine Carpet. It is reasonably common on the mainland but has never been recoreded out here before.
