At Last !

TWO PUGS attracted to last nights trap lights. Maybe COMMON PUG but could well be BRINDLED
COMMON PUG
thanks Melissa and Ben,


COULD THIS BE THE END OF THE LONG WINTER ??


Night-time temperatures were much higher last night with a min of 7 deg C which stirred a few moths into action. They look set to be getting warmer over the next week so I am expecting some good returns from the traps at long last..


27 moths of 11 species appeared, with a couple of garden firsts including two pugs pictured above.

STREAMER, clinging to the side of the funnel trap. A garden First.


CODLING MOTH, Cydia pomonella.


A garden first and a threat to my apple trees !
