Woodland 16, Garden 9

Good numbers of moths in woodland in the Rheidol Valley last night, despite the temperature falling to at about 1 degree. Chestnut, Small Quaker and Early Grey in double figures, single Small and Pale Brindled Beautys, Engrailed, Twin-spot Quaker and Spring Usher. Satellite (3) was new for my county list. In total 71 moths of 16 species.

The garden trap has been (unsurprisingly) less productive, mostly Common Quaker, Hebrew Character and Clouded Drab, with singles of Common Plume, Brindled Pug, Early Grey, Pale Brindled Beauty and a garden first Oak Beauty. Spotted my first Luffia ferchaultella for the year on the house this morning.
