Last night was very humid following heavy rain giving way to warm sunshine. The trap was quite lively as I got to it later than usual! A good sprinkling of species included 2 Green Silver-lines, a Lime Hawk-moth and a Pale Tussock.

Lunchtime at Phase 3 Development site was fantastic. There were dozens of Blue-tailed, Common Blue and Large Red Damselflies. Monkey Flower Mimulus guttatus was new to Keele.
