Spring Usher

We set two traps in woodland at Ynys-hir last night, in the same places where we had such large catches recently. The temperature was down to 7 C this morning and we had far fewer moths to check. We had our first Spring Usher and Tortricodes alternella of the year. Full catch was: Mottled Umber (16), Spring Usher (12), Pale Brindled Beauty (4), Winter Moth (3), Chestnut (5), Tortricodes alternella (4), Acleris ferrugana/notana (3).
