Moth numbers (and variety) improving...

Last night (18/3) I put out two traps in my Pwll garden, one MV and the other an actinic. Seventeen species were recorded, including several personal FFYs - yellow horned, pale pinion, grey shoulder-knot, water carpet and twin-spotted quaker. Numbers were also up eg. 11 Hebrew characters, 16 common quakers and 7 brindled pugs. The weather looks suitable tonight too - so it may well be worth trapping.

                                                              Above: yellow horned.
                                                           Above: grey shoulder-knot.
                                                   Above: twin-spotted quaker.
                                                                    Above: pale pinion.
                                                                 Above: oak beauty.
