Last night we ran 2 small actinic lights in some woodland close to the coast at Wallog. One of the traps caught 11 Chestnut and no other species. The other had Chestnut (8), Early moth (2), Dotted Border, Satellite, and Red-green carpet. Normally only the females of Red-green carpet over-winter and are usually seen in low numbers in April and May. There are 8 other county records for January and February, is it possible that some of these were males?
