A Cooler Night

Last night the temperature dropped to 2.8°C and our exposed garden trap had only four moths (Hebrew Character & Common Quaker).  The sheltered wood trap however produced 31 moths of 14 species.  New for us this year were Purple Thorn, Great Prominent, Lunar Marbled Brown and Water Carpet.

Evan & Carolyn.
