Have trapped a couple of times a week over the last fortnight or so, hoping this mild weather might bring in a few interesting things. Nothing very much to report though. Common marbled carpet, flounced chestnut, green-brindled crescent and frosted orange have been the commonest, roughly in that order. These have all dropped off now, leaving red-line quaker at the top of the pile recently. Slightly less common moths, at least here, have been dusky thorn, lunar underwing, grey pine carpet and broad-bordered yellow underwing. Migrants have been represented by a single dark sword-grass and eight or so silver Y over that period.
