26th July 2011...Gradual improvement

Overnight temp. 13.4 deg. Overcast and calm conditions.
61 Shuttle-shaped Darts was an all-time high, and at last Common Carpet has turned up.
Two more Small Ranunculus brought the years total to a very healthy 22.
Three Straw Underwings were the first this year and an Old Lady made two attempts to go in the trap unsuccessfully.It fluttered around like a bat before settling on the house wall long enough for me to get camera/large pot, but not long enough to put either to use, so no pic. I had 5 or 6 of these last year so I'm hoping another opportunity will soon arise.
Tonight looks good weatherwise so I'm hoping to get my 200th macro for the to go !
On the micro front, a good selection, with a garden first for Aspilapteryx tringipennella.

  1. Trent, i`m looking forward to the emergence of Old Lady, up here. With not trapping, i use (very, very) over-ripe Plums & Banana`s to attract em. It`s worked in the previous years.
