No fly zone

Went yesterday lunchtime to look for flies on a sunny day and came back with a moth and a plant. No dipteran additions! Last night a brief headtorch foray produced only two additions (so far - could go up), maybe because of a clear sky and a breeze. I found quite a few repeats so it wasn't as bad as suggested by the relatively low additions. Normally I would count a decent night walk as five new species, so slightly underwhelming. Should take me onto the 80 mark for moths though, and a couple of baby steps closer to the 800 mark.
