From the garden trap - 31/03/2008

Fewer moths last night, unsurprising with the lower temps and rain. At least it was clear by the time I emptied the traps before work - nothing worse than emptying them in the rain. All the noctuids were in the actinic, everything else in the MV - strange but true.

Total catch 10 of 6sp
(Actinic 6 of 3sp, MV 4 of 3sp)

Agonopterix heracliana 1
Shoulder Stripe (Anticlea badiata) 1
Early Thorn (Selenia dentaria) 2
Common Quaker (Orthosia cerasi) 4
Clouded Drab (Orthosia incerta) 1
Hebrew Character (Orthosia gothica) 1

A spring favourite of mine - Early Thorn
