Salem

I trapped last night despite it being clearer and colder than originally forecast. 80+ moths of 13 species in and around the trap this morning so still worth doing. Mostly just the usual suspects but an oak nycteoline was the highlight - think it's a first for me at home. Red chestnut and  shoulder-stripe were the only other firsts for the year for me at this site. Top scorer was hebrew character with 22 followed by early grey with 17.
The other lepidopteran highlight of the weekend was my first orange-tip of the year enjoying the sun today along with peacocks and small torts.
