Common quaker

Pete Skinner reported this Common quaker from his trap last night. There have been several unusually early records of this moth from around the country, and this is the earliest record for VC46 by 6 days. He also caught several Chestnut moths.

Correction: As Evan has pointed out ( see comments) this is actually only the fourth earliest county record for Common quaker. The earliest records are: 03/01/2013, 09/01/2016, 30/01/1989.

  1. Sorry Tony but we put one on the blog on January 9th and you commented that the earliest one had been on January 3rd.

  2. Thanks for pointing that out Evan, somehow I managed to miss the January records. I have edited the post.
