Moth-ing Weather at last

The first trapping session of the year at Maenol last night yielded eleven moths: 5 Early Moths, and singles of March Moth, Hebrew Character, Small Quaker, Clouded Drab, and two micros which I believe to be Diurnea fagella and Acleris literana, both somewhat unexpected arrivals.

The latest Newsletter is excellent, a cracking read, congratulations and many thanks to all concerned!


  1. The Acleris is good record Steve, and thanks for the Newsletter comments.

  2. PS - I forgot to say...your other moth certainly looks like Diurnea to me. If I trap in my local woods tonight, I expect that I`ll catch it too - it seems to be more frequent in sheltered woodland, especially oakwoods. Nevertheless, an useful record of a moth that can be missed if you don`t trap early in the year.
