The year so far.

The trap had a brief outing on Jan 28th. The haul was small, a Chestnut, a Dark Chestnut and an early  March Moth.

Getting desperate to see something more, I tried again mid-Feb, finding just a Chestnut.

A brief spell of warmer weather at the start of March made me hope that we were going to have a repeat of last year's mild spring, and over 4 nights, I caught 33 moths of 13 species, including Light Brown Apple Moth, Small Brindled Beauty, Oak Beauty, Dotted Border, Hebrew Character and Satellite.

A couple of my early spring visitors:
