Moth trapping Milton Keynes 9th March 2014

Well I really wasn't expecting last night. I checked my records and this time last year I had single moths on nights I trapped it wasn't until mid April that I hit double figures and multiple species, so I was already well ahead with the trapping from a few nights ago, but after a really warm weekend (stuck at work for me so no going out or trapping) I thought I'd give it a go and low and behold what a night! 29 Moths of 7 species including 3 New ones for me!!

    1. Thank you David, I plan on setting up better when I move later in the year, want to do more than my usual moth on white (as much as I love the style, it does get a little stale)
