9th April 2011...Garden Trap,.. 2 more year "firsts".

Two more for the year list, but fewer moths recorded last night. Two reasons, 1) Temperatures plummeted to 3deg... 2) Yours truly was getting stuck into some Australian Cab-Shaz and didn't do the regular patrol of the lights/traps. ....................................................................................................

PALE TUSSOCK 2028....year first
BRIGHT-LINE BROWN-EYE 2160...year first
EARLY THORN 1917
DOUBLE-STRIPED PUG 1862

This is my commonest moth at present. The first 2011 record was on the 25th February, when the overnight temperature was 7.7 deg, more than double last nights temp !

The next record was on the 15th March and to date I have recorded 88 in the garden. Last nights totals:-

4 x Common Quaker

3 x Double-striped Pug

1 x Hebrew Character

1 x Early Thorn

1 x Early Grey

1 x Emmelina monodactyla

1 x Bright-line Brown-eye (year first)

1 x Pale Tussock (year first)


687 moths caught of 35/36 species (one ID pending)

543 macro, 24 species

144 micro, 11/12 species (ID pending)
