Tales of birding, ringing and observing wildlife around the Fylde area of Lancashire and beyond.
Nice crisp one that! Looking forward to trying my 'black' light - coming to a suburb near you this week.CheersD
The moth most likely to go into your ear and turn round and round. Cheaper than going to a rock concert.
That sounds a bit unpleasant!
Ask Steve Palmer - been there when he had a Square Spot Rustic do just that - its a very loud and discordant experience! The remedy was to put his head to one side, pour cooking/olive oil into his ear and then head for casualty so they can remove the then lifeless oily culprit with tweezers. Flame Shoulder is known to be the worst culprit because it is small enough to easily turn round in your ear which is even more painful than a larger moth which crawls in and gets stuck
Maybe I'll start wearing ear plugs (if indeed you do 'wear' an ear plug) when emptying my moth trap!
