26th May 2017

The first blog entry of the year as it's been a particularly slow start to the year with lots of cool nights and a fair amount of reluctance on my part to get up early and look into an empty trap! Still, the warm nights have now arrived and last night was pretty good for late May with 40 species. Elachista atricomella and Platytes cerussella were both second garden records and it's always nice to see Maiden's Blush which is quite uncommon here.
