Purdis news December 2018.

Not much to report from my site for December as I didn’t really do much trapping (due to time constraints). Was a lot of Mottled umber around, more so than normal as well as lots of Winter moth, both mainly seen around security lights or flying around in torchlight when starting work at 6am here in the dark. Interestingly saw some female Winter moths round the lights too, did they crawl in themselves or were they carried there whilst attached to males?
My 2019 list has already started with Pale brindled beauty, Winter and a few Mottled umbers and Spring ushers noted on the night of the 1st January.
