A few moths brave the wind.

Weather this month has been dire, with little opportunity to trap. Even last night it was borderline, but as it was mild and fairly sheltered in the garden I gave it a go with a single trap. A few moths were caught, most hiding under the sheet under the trap or perched on a nearby fence rather than in the trap. 10sp in all, including 2 Oak beauty and first records for the year of Hebrew character and Small quaker. Pale brindled beauty still going along with Tortricodes alternella but no Spring usher so that is probably over. Hopefully there will be another weather window sometime soon so I can trap in a more wooded area, far too windy to attempt that last night.
