GMS

The summer Garden Moth Scheme recording period is now finished and Norman Lowe has just sent me the Wales results for the last quarter which I've copied below. If you trap most weeks from early March to early November consider giving the GMS a go next year.  You are allowed to miss a few weeks and, although ideally every Friday, trapping can be any day of the week.  If you are really, really keen you can even have a go at Winter GMS (this evening's wind and rain isn't too inspiring though). Full details should be on the GMS website (see our link) or contact Norman on norman@enviro-consulting.com

Norman writes:

I’ve already had nearly 30 sets of data from you so here’s a first look at the results for the Autumn GMS, weeks 28-36. As you can see, most species have done better than last year, which wouldn’t be difficult remembering how poor last year was.
