After a warm day on Thursday and a clear night, there was finally a good number of moths in the trap this morning – around 20 in total, though limited species richness.
The best of the bunch was this Frosted Green:
It’s another wonderful Spring moth, the colour of fresh moss/lichen, and with a glossy sheen which doesn’t quite come across on the photos. In addition to this I had Dotted border, a pretty geometrid:
Other than that it was fairly ordinary stuff, with Hebrew Character, Common Quaker and Early Grey dominating the numbers.
A quick mention to my nephew, Ed, though who is trapping brilliantly down in Goodhavern, Cornwall and getting some cracking moths, including this one which I think is Pale Pinion:
Warm again tonight. Time to set the trap again …
