6th Oct 2011

overnight min temp...6.8 deg, strong wind, showers, heavy at times.
Had to cover the traps as the rain was coming in at 45 degrees on the strong wind.
Put them back on at midnight, with clearing skies and temperatures plummeting so the count was well down.
No immigrant moths as yet following the week of warm southerlies.
