The only opportunity to put the box out for GMS was Sunday night. Turned out rather well with a min temperature of 8.5C resulting in 38 moths of 13 species, although 17 of these were Brindled Beauty!
Four species were new for the year - a fine looking Brimstone Moth, Brown Silver-line, Lunar Marbled Brown and my first ever Pale Prominent.
Mid-week box last night. Temperature was reasonable (min 7.5C) but the wind was more than a little chilly. Well worth the effort though - 18 moths of 9 species with Angle Shades making a first appearance of the year and my first ever Mullein .... if my ID is correct.
First Butterflies of the year - 2 x Holly Blues feeding on Laurel Blossom.
Trapping in the evening was very cold down to 6.9C. A small catch, but I think the Waved Umber is new to the garden. The rest being V- Pug, Hebrew Character, Brindled Beauty, Common Quaker and Brown House Moth.
