After a two-night break I was back in the saddle and ready to catch some more moths, unfortunately the weather wasn't to be on my side and we have had really strong winds these past few days and last night was again very gusty but incredibly mild at 11c this morning at 6am.
Just 7 moths were found, all in the trap with nothing on the fence panels around the garden or on the house wall, a little disappointing to say the least but I was pleased to get a year first Agonopterix alstromeriana, never common here with between 1 and 3 records a year but it is consistent in that i've seen it 6 years running here.
I'm hoping the wind will die down a little for tonight...and then it's back to cooler weather come next week!
