Mark tonight looks ok for moths, I've just popped out to look at the trap and find 16 March Moths onthe outside! No idea whats inside...
Bloody hell. Just checked - in 10 years I've had a total of 33 individual March Moths, with 5 in one night being the highest count .....Might be okay where you are - my trap is bulging with 2 Satellite so far - though to be fair I've only had 6 of those before with the first in 2006.And yet another frog loitering.
I better keep my trap shut (my mouth)just had a blinder in local Woodland, Moths everywhere... only 4 to my security light in the Garden though.
Yes Ben - getting out into the woodland is certainly the way to go for numbers and diversity, especially in the early season (like the 191 of 18sp. I had at Pickworth Great Wood over a couple of hours on 28/02/2009). Usually a bit more coming to the garden trap though ...Hopefully I'll be out tomorrow evening - if we get enough lights out we'll pick up plenty.
