This week saw the publication of a note in the Entomologists Record and Journal of Variation, by myself and the wonderful Nick Littlewood. The note itself, centred on a summer spent scrutinising the Lepidoptera of the Invermark Estate, in Angus. Detailing a number of interesting finds, including, a county second, a number of BAP species, and the first inland record of another, rather lovely moth species in Angus. And covering a host of interesting critters, from the scarce Small Dark-Yellow Underwing, to the dinky Northern Brown Argus.

It was a pleasure to spent time in the company of Nick during last summer, and, truth be told, I learnt an awful lot during our time on Invermark. This note – my first foray into anything remotely scientific – standing testament to a great time had by all. Should anyone wish to read said entry, I will be more than happy to share my own copy. It is, however, well worth signing up to this awfully informative publication.
