  1. Hi Ben,
    Great to get your reports from Bardsey to brighten up the winter !Your pics are very good - you should enter a selection in the junior sections of national competitions - eg BBC Wildlife Magazine and also National Insect Photo Competition if you haven't already. I reckon you'd stand a very good chance of winning. I am a judge for the latter, which happens every 2 years - due again in summer of 2010 - if you e-mail me your address I'll send you details when I have them. Also I'll send you a few moth pics from when I was doing my Robinson trapping on the island with your valuable quad-bike help last July ! Porter by name and by nature arf arf. Hope to hear from you soon. Ali Driver (National Conservation Manager, Environment Agency) ali@sonningdrivers.plus.com
