The first opportunity to trap came on Sunday night, and the mild, overcast conditions gave a modest catch of about 25 species. Merveille du Jour, Black Rustic, Red-green carpet and Red-line Quaker were firsts for the year. Other notables were Pine Carpet, Spruce carpet, Gold Spot, Dusky Thorn and Brindled Green (several of each), Pale Mottled Willow, Canary-shouldered Thorn, Pink-bordered Sallow and a tortricid which I believe to be Strawberry Tortrix (see photo, please correct if wrong). There were two or three other tortricids whose photos I might post later, once I've processed them, in the hope of getting identifications. One of the Brindled Greens had me doubting, it was so vividly marked, but I can't think what else it might be.
Last night was clear and cool, and perhaps not surprisingly produced only nine moths, all different, Dark Sword-grass and brown China-mark being the only notable additions to the previous night.
