Yes, it's a comet! Called Neowise after the telescope that spotted it. Visible only if the sky is clear, which it was last weekend when Tim Jones managed to get this lovely photo of the skyline above Lady Down. The sky isn't going to be clear for a good few more days, but the comet should stay around till the end of the month. Let's hope the sky does clear as Neowise won't be back for another 6,800 years!
The pages now display photos of moths taken by Andrew Graham. This one's the Puss Moth, looks very soft and cuddly.
This blog is updated usually every 2-4 days, depending of course on what's happening, as also other pages independently or linked from blogposts.
If it's not me, Elizabeth Forbes, website editor (keen but ignorant), I'll say so.
