From the garden trap, 23/05/2010

A pretty good night in the garden traps, with the warm and humid conditions bringing a total of 122 of 37sp. (125W MV 61 of 25, 80W actinic 61 of 26) including 12 firsts for the year in the garden. I was pleased to see the actinic catch up, but I can't be sure on one nights showing if this was down to excellent conditions or a genuine iprovement through changing the tubes.

The traps I left at Narborough Bog did very well - I'll have to leave you in suspense whist I sort the list and photos out though. The garden traps are our again tonight, though it is distinctly cooler than previous nights with a bit of breeze.

Good point - haven't posted a musical interlude for a while. As it happens I've been enjoying a load of Germanic electronia courtesy of Kraftwerk over the last week or so.
