COAM in Spring

This year I and my mothing partners are going to concentrate on the Chiltern Open Air Museum site, just on the Bucks side of the border with Herts.

Although last night was the coldest of the week, we put out 3 traps (2MV and an Actinic - which only caught 1 moth). There would have been 4, but my MV bulb had mysteriously broken over the winter. Luckily I have more, just not with me.

Anyway, pending the correct numbers of each species from Rob, who kept the list:

1 x Yellow Horned
14 x Common Quaker
6 x Hebrew Character
6 x Clouded Drab
2 x Twin-spotted Quaker
2 x Small Quaker
1 x Chestnut
1 x March Moth
1 x Oak Beauty
1 x Agonopterix heracliana

Most of these are new for the site, mainly because I didn't start trapping there until May last year.

Yellow Horned
