Last night was quite mild at around 8 degrees but breezy...luckily the breeze as predicted dropped down by the morning.
At 7.30am I inspected the trap..nothing, then the sheet behind it...nothing then the surrounding area and BINGO! A moth and the third species for the year a stunning green-hued Pale Brindled Beauty.
Roll on nearly three hours and as I go to photograph the PBB, I noticed a moth on the patio door which I must have missed in the morning gloom.
A Tortricodes alternella was observed and made it 50% extra free!
Hopefully will be trying again either tonight or tomorrow night as this warm air prevails for the next few days at least.
