From the garden trap 13/11/2011

The Synergetic combo trap has been on a few times in the last week or so, but nothing exciting or new for the year. With news of yet another Palpita vitrealis in Leicester (both in Adrian's trap - lucky bugger), I decided it was time to go all out and run the MV aswell. Didn't make a blind bit of difference, although I did pick up a garden yeartick in the Synergetic.

Total catch 13 of 6sp.
(125W MV 4 of 3, 22W/18W Synergetic/CFL combo 9 of 5)
0874 Blastobasis lacticolella 4
0998 Light Brown Apple Moth (Epiphyas postvittana) 1
1395 Rusty-dot Pearl (Udea ferrugalis) 2
1799 Winter Moth (Operophtera brumata) 1
1923 Feathered Thorn (Colotois pennaria) 4
1933 Scarce Umber (Agriopis aurantiaria) 1 (NFY)

Scarce Umber

Still no sniff of Sprawler or December Moth - neither recorded here since 2001.

Charging? I think meandering is far more likely - unless I can learn more plants!
