Conifer woodland moths

We put a 15W Heath trap in some local conifer woodland last night and, not surprisingly, got our first Spruce carpets of the year. There were good numbers of Spruce carpet, Brindled pug, Hebrew character, and Common quaker, six Engrailed, and 1 or 2 each of Early tooth-striped, Water carpet, Great prominent, Early thorn, Clouded drab, Early grey, and Double-striped pug. Only one micro moth, a Twenty-plume.
