Saturday March 15

Sorting through the overnight moth-trap catch at this time of year is much less daunting than during the later spring/summer. There are fewer in both number and variety. Last night's catch was only 26 of 10 species.
10 Common Quakers
3 Twinspot Quakers
3 Small Quakers
1 Yellow Horned
2 March
2 Clouded Drab
2 Satellite

1 Pale Brindled Beauty
1 Dotted Border

1 Early Grey

We trapped 46 species last week when the nights were less cold, including several Oak Beauties

 and the usually ever present Hebrew Characters.
