Slightly less quiet last night

I was able to put the MV trap out at last, but conditions were not ideal - clear and cool - so the turn-out of moths was modest.  31 moths of 9 spp. were recorded, more than half of them Hebrew Characters (18), the rest consisting of 3 Brindled Beauties, 3 FFY Pebble Prominents, 2 Water Carpets, and singles of Small Phoenix, Engrailed, Lunar Marbled Brown, Powdered Quaker, and the  best of the bunch Least Black Arches.

I'm hoping that the warmer weather in prospect might be accompanied by at least one overcast night (but not overcast during the day of course!)
