Over-wintering Moths

Despite a minimum temperature of -1.5°C last night we managed to catch eight macro species and the usual Tortricodes alternella in two traps.  New for this year were Common and Small Quakers and Clouded Drab.  We also caught these two over-wintering moths - Grey Shoulder-knot and the two forms of Satellite.
