All Things Must Pass - George Harrison

An apt headline today as the daylight hours of Saturday 'passed' without a whimper of Wildlife, the evening 'passed' all too quickly when Lyn joined me at Slight Return II for dinner, while my tenure as 218th in line for the Peerage of Parley will 'pass' into oblivion at 21:00 tonight when Hugh and Janet return from Siberia.
For what it's worth the traps yesterday produced little more than
 OAK HOOK-TIP
and
 OAK NYCTEOLINE
After which it was left to those at the
to provide the rest of the days action.
At these events, which are GB recognised
all competitors and their trusty steeds
show up in the very best of attire 
but on the day there was one Young Lady who

It was also a great pleasure to have a Lady at my dinner table
where Lyn and I enjoyed some good food (say it myself I shouldn't),
more than enough Fine Wine and my own selection of music for our entertainment.
Kicking off with the sensational and not exactly displeasing to the eye
(Note - Jools Holland cannot keep his eyes off of her!)

so 'click' on one hour and start with Monty Python.
BEWARE - you will not want to turn it off!
For those who would just prefer a 'taster' this is my preferred track
Clapton and Marc Mann (flat black cap) on lead guitars at their level best.
Beware of Darkness
Our mutually enjoyable evening ended close to midnight with unarguably
the BEST SAXOPHONE BREAK
in the whole of
Rock 'n' Roll
Will You - Hazel O'Connor (feat Wesley McGoogan - Saxophone)
From this morning's Moth Traps little more than one variation of
HARLEQUIN LADYBIRD

followed by a second.
Also variable in colour the
SPIDER
ARANEUS DIADEMATUS
The second
and more obliging
SOUTHERN HAWKER
DRAGONFLY
in as many days and a
LARVAE
which is still in the identification stage.
