28th April 2009

Despite poor overnight mothing conditions new year ticks keep trickling in. Last night looked so unpromising that I very nearly didn't bother but with 9 moths of 7 species, two new for the year, it proved worthwhile.

First of the new species was this Brimstone Moth which came to the trap within minutes of the light being turned on:

Bright-line Brown-eye was also new for the year list:
