Last night`s trap...

I made a token gesture of putting a single mains actinic trap out last night (Friday 4/10) and exactly a dozen species of autumn moths were present this morning, including my first Blair`s shoulder- knot of the season.

                                                      Above: Blair`s shoulder-knot.

  1. Nice to get Blair's S-k, Ian, I've only ever had one here. What a coincidence, I too used a single mains actinic trap last night and recorded twelve species!

  2. Well done Ian; I've never had one - jealous!

  3. That works out at 1.0833 pence per moth according to your smart meter Ian!

    1. That Blair's Shoulder-knot will surely be claiming to be under-valued. I'd certainly pay more than 1.0833 for one.
