Having gone out on a fruitless Tawny Owl search, ended up with 26 Glowworm in a traditional site. A poor number when compared to 84 on the same transect in the heat of 2006. Whilst on inverts, in answer to Phil Sims' query on 'gallery' two weeks ago, at about that time there were good numbers of Elephant Hawk Moth on the wing. I had 5 in the garden on 27th June
