New Waring and Townsend

The Third Edition arrived this morning from NHBS £30.98 inc postage, CHEAPER than Amazon!

Looks good though I think the pics are more to the page so less space for comments/notes and to my eye the printing of the pics is not quite so crisp.  Otherwise same layout for text as the Micro book including maps so much quicker to reference than text (though the text still has distribution details) and the pics are numbered as plates rather than pages with clearer colour demarcation for families than previously.

There are 55 additional illustrations and revised texts to account for the many changes since Ed 2 which was printed in 2009 and of course the moths are arranged in a new order which might bother those of you who mastered the page numbers in the old book!

Last night's attempt to add Spring Usher to the Coed Y Bont species list (standing at 215) failed as the cloud did not materialise but will be trying again once the battery has recovered!
