A few more

Another night with reasonable temps, and another decent sized catch but no stunners - certainly nothing Howick-like! In fact the only surprise as such was my first spring Dark Chestnut.

Total catch was 115 of 11sp.

0282 Caloptilia elongella 1 (NFY)
0688 Agonopterix heracliana 5
1497 Amblyptilia acanthadactyla 1
1524 Emmelina monodactyla 2
1746 Shoulder Stripe (Anticlea badiata) 3
2182 Small Quaker (Orthosia cruda) 1
2187 Common Quaker (Orthosia cerasi) 62
2188 Clouded Drab (Orthosia incerta) 18
2190 Hebrew Character (Orthosia gothica) 18
2243 Early Grey (Xylocampa areola) 3 (NFY)
2259 Dark Chestnut (Conistra ligula) 1 (NFY)

Not quite sure what's going on with Hebrew Characters - I usually get more of these than both Common Quaker and Clouded Drab.

No time for any photos - early in to work and out for an early meal this evening.

Yes Common Quaker's seem to be dominating the 'small' catch here as well.
