Woodland benefits

My `new` garden is located right next to extensive mixed woodland and whilst last night`s (29/4) haul was certainly not large in terms of numbers or variety, it was not entirely without interest. Best of the catch was an ochreous pug (a Scot`s pine feeder) and an alder kitten. Apart from a bee moth (Aphomia sociella), the trap was devoid of micros - perhaps it was too cool.
