It's Been A While...

...since I last saw any moths, but after a slightly milder night, a regular actinic light placed in a local managed woodland produced a couple of December Moths and an Acleris sparsana.

Also on the site were a brace of Mottled Umber, a Scarce Umber and a pair of Winter Moths.

I am trapping for the Winter Garden Moth Scheme, both at home and at the above site, and these were the first moths I can report during the season. Last year (garden only) I had a total of 9 moths during the whole 16 weeks; currently I'm not holding my breath for anything better but let's see shall we!
