20th March 2011....Spring equinox at last

The Spring equinox is here and the daytime is now longer than the night.

Conditions were very good for the time of year and the traps were busier than usual with 38 moths recorded of 8 species.

Mostly the same old, but an Early Thorn turned up to brighten up the evenings mothing.

Tonight Matt Ratface Trappings and myself will be at Holme Wood for our second outing there. The first occasion was quite a success considering we only used a battery operated, low wattage trap, but tonight we are taking the jenny and a couple of traps, a 100 watt FUL and an 80watt MV.

Looking forward to that as the weather forecast looks very favourable.
The full report will appear on Matts blog, http://thetrappingsofsuccess.blogspot.com
