Slim Pickings at Pwll

After the exceptional variety of moths earlier this week (when the warm weather conditions were very atypical for November), it was `back to normal` last night. As heavy rain was forecast for this morning (and it came!), my actinic trap was only left out from c 6.00pm to 10.30pm, but it was hardly worth it - just four species of moth: feathered thorn x2, pine carpet x1, common marbled carpet x1 and an Epirrita sp.

  1. A noble effort, Ian. I very nearly persuaded myself to put the trap out last night, but it was far too windy, even in the Dutch barn. When I heard the rain in the wee small hours, I was happy with my decision.
