Happy New Year.
A valiant attempt was made last night to catch a December Moth, which we have not recorded in 2018. it was not successful but a new species for the year was added- Spring Usher!
A balmy 1.6°C overnight but another attempt was made for December Moth (with no luck). A solitary Chestnut was the only reward.
No traps for a few days but a nice Blair’s Shoulder-knot was picked up off a path through Blue Pigeons on Worth.
A relatively mild 10.6°C overnight but less moths than a few days ago. Only one made it in, a Red-line Quaker, and a Silver-y on the outside too. The Quaker was our latest ever record by over two weeks with the Silver-y just one day shy of equaling our latest record.
