From The Garden Trap - 27/06/2011

On the off-chance that anyone is reading this blog, thought I'd get the garden posts up to date. Didn't run the garden trap on Tuesday and Wednesday - slight turn-down in conditions plus I was too knackered to be getting early again. So just the Monday night catch to report, but before that I forgot to mention yesterday that I had a yeartick Borkhausenia fuscescens on the front garden on Saturday afternoon.

So, Monday night was more of the same numbers wise - actually even more moths - but sadly nothing new for the garden.

Total catch 441 of 92sp.

Hi Mark,

Me too, I like to catch up with what's turning up 'over the border'. Always interesting to see that whenever I've had a new for the year, you seem to have it the day before me! Must get warmer in Leicestershire quicker than Derbyshire!?!

Happy moffing!
