I recorded my first moth of the year on Saturday in my kitchen, a hibernating Mompha subbistrigella fell out of our blind as I unrolled it fully to measure how long it was in preparation for buying a new one.
Yesterday night I ran the trap for the first time this year, and after about 2 hours the first Winter Moth was recorded for the year.
Leaving it running all night I was rewarded by another Winter Moth and singles of Acleris schalleriana and Chestnut.
Nice to get the ball rolling.
Good luck everyone on catching those sparse winter moths!
