A bit on the nippy side last night and low counts for traps.
Plenty of Flounced Rustics around but Large Yellow Underwings are on the decline now.
A year first Lunar Underwing added one more to the year list.
2011 garden tally:-
398 species....227 macro, 171 micro
I am thinking of waving the white flag on the wine bet as I am about 25 species behind Capt. Trappings and struggling to keep up let alone make any ground.
Maybe some intense leaf mining might help a little but I don't have the range of indiginous trees & shrubs as C.T. who wisely planted a 30mt native hedgerow a few years back and has accrued a big tally of micro moths this year.
(But not yet (:0))
