Early Common quaker

In early January Joyce reported a very early Common quaker. Another has been taken this week at Aberporth by Sarah who was just trying out her new moth trap. She says "I am using a 15W mains actinic skinner trap in my garden and I made a note that when my trap was out for a few hours after dusk on Monday 18th Feb there was a clear sky and the temperature started at 5.7C and dropped to 2.5C. Since I had only received my trap that day I was only really testing it and I didn't expect to find anything in there so it was a nice surprise to find a moth - beginner's luck!"
