An Explosion of Winter Moths

Following on from our first Winter Moth Scheme garden trapping on the 1st of this year (min temp -0.8°C) when we caught NO moths at all, last night we had a bonanza catch with a total of 271 Winter Moths and 18 Mottled Umber both in and on the trap (min temp + 4.9°C) . Unfortunately the picture below does not do full justice to this.
