Moth Trapping 02-04-2014

After a sticky but dull day yesterday I thought I really should get the trap out again (off to Kent next week so hopefully I'll trap a few interesting ones there) and it was an OK night, I had my first Micro's of the year and my first carpet but otherwise it was business as usual.

Finally managed to find some time and good weather to get the trap out overnight last night and I'm glad I did 9 species in the trap (maybe 10 I'm a little unsure if one of them is a Clouded Drab or a lead Coloured Drab) with 39 moths. Including at least 1 new one for me. and at least 2 new ones for the year (not including the new one for me).
