30th April 2012
At last a reasonable night for trapping - if you ignore the heavy rain. Most of the moths were new for the year but the highlight was a very early Silver Y, all the more remarkable as I recorded only a handful of this species during the entire of last year. Scarce Tissue was also very welcome after being absent last year. I'm confident that the pug (picture below) is Golden-Rod but would welcome any comments. Caloptilia stigmatella was the highlight amongst a small number of micros.
