A Productive Warm Night

We set four traps on a balmy night this weekend in and around our property.  We were rewarded with over a hundred moths and 23 different macro species.  In addition to the very plentiful Orthosias our catch included Early Thorn, Early Tooth-striped, Yellow Horned, Red Swordgrass, Early Grey, Pale Pinion, Red Chestnut and Brindled & Double Striped Pugs.

  1. Wow! Good numbers, we seem to be missing the good mothing weather there. We have been on a Belted Beauty hunt and found eleven. Still, good numbers for that species so early in their season.
