10th April 2009

My first Swallow of the year zipped over the garden and the first Willow Warbler was singing from the top of the Silver Birch as I went to empty the moth trap. It was dull and damp but quite warm and a reasonable number of moths had braved the overnight rain. 17 moths of 7 species included the first Powdered Quaker of the year.

Trap list (125w MV)

Early Thorn - 2
Red Chestnut - 1
Common Quaker - 2
Hebrew Character - 7
Clouded Drab - 2
Powdered Quaker - 1
Early Grey - 2
