Early Spring Moths

A warm night in the last week of meteorological winter produced 13 macro species from our usual two traps.  These included the first of our two favourite early spring moths - Oak Beauty and Early Grey, this melanic Engrailed and a very dark-coloured Chestnut. Also new for this year were March and Early Moths.

  1. Early Grey do start to appear in late February but there were only 16 county records in February up to last year. It is amazing how species manage to co-ordinate their emergence, Pete had his first for the year at Llanarth last night.
