Only small numbers of moths, but....
Although there was an active breeze here on the coast last night (26.10.14), the overcast and slightly drizzly night suggested that it may be worth putting out a trap at home. There were only small numbers of moths in the trap but one was a `good one` - Palpita vitrealis, an immigrant pyralid of which there have been several sightings on the S English coast in recent weeks. So, there are still interesting records to be `squeezed` out of 2014, and there`s nothing easier than home trapping at this time of the year.
