Woodland moths

With overnight temperature forecast to be 7C I put two heath traps in some mixed woodland last night. This morning I had 27 moths of 10 species. Nearly half of them were Satellites plus 5 Chestnut and 4 Engrailed. Good to see my first Early grey, Mottled grey, March moth, Small quaker and Oak beauty of the year.
