Winter woodland moths

It was a balmy 15C with a light breeze when we set two traps in predominantly oak woodland last night. The high winds later on removed the light from one of the traps but the light kept running and we still had a reasonable catch: 7 Spring usher, 4 Dotted border, 14 Chestnut, 3 Winter moth, 2 Mottled umber, 1 Pale brindled beauty, and 22 Tortricodes alternella.
