A quick garden moth update

Been very busy of late - aside form the foray to WCPS on Saturday morning the weekend was mainly spent in work. I was in last night and back in again early this morning. I did manage to get the garden traps out last night though, and going through them at 05:40 this morning in the early dim light I recorded the following:

Total catch 80 of 7sp.
(125W MV 46 of 7sp., 80W/100W actinic/tungsten 34 of 4sp.)

1524 Emmelina monodactyla 3
1746 Shoulder Stripe (Anticlea badiata) 1 (NFY)
1862 Double-striped Pug (Gymnoscelis rufifasciata) 1
2187 Common Quaker (Orthosia cerasi) 53
2188 Clouded Drab (Orthosia incerta) 12
2189 Twin-spotted Quaker (Orthosia munda) 1
2190 Hebrew Character (Orthosia gothica) 9

It's very mild tonight and the traps are back out ....
