Anchorage zoo internship

Well Molly had the time of her life in Anchorage - good to have her home - but I know where she'd rather be!
The wolves proved to be a favourite!

Autumnal moths, the sallows

As you can see from last night's moth trap, autumn has well and truly arrived.
In late August (29th/30th) we collected many summer moths as well as one or two autumnal moths but today it seems that the autumnal moths are finally here!
The colours of autumn: a collection of sallows, centre barred sallows and a pink-barred sallow
