Saturday 7th

Enough of a drop in the wind to run the trap and the temperature kept just above 7°C. There was just one moth and it was on the outside. It was the first December Moth for the year.

Wednesday 4th

Conditions have either been too wet, too windy, or too cold for running the trap. However we have had some more results from gen. dets. from the summer. These included four new species for the Bay- Dichrorampha alpinana, Phyllonorycter hilarella, Elachista utonella and Parornix torquillella. There were also two seconds for the Bay – Monochroa lucidella and Cnephasia asseclana.
