Our First Spring Ushers

Following our excellent social moth gathering in Aberaeron we were inspired to put out two traps last night.  The minimum temperature was 8°C.  The trap in oak woodland produced 16 Spring Ushers of two main forms, seven Chestnuts, four Winter Moths and two Tortricodes alternella (FL 11mm).  In the more exposed garden trap we had just one Winter Moth and one Satellite.
