22nd March 2012 ... These or thosias

Overnight min. temp. 3.8 deg. calm and clear, but foggy at dawn.
It was still 7 deg at midnight so the catch was disappointing.
Apart from the usual, just 1 Twin-spotted Quaker, and that was on the patio door. Just 21 moths of 8 species :-

0998...Light Brown Apple Moth Epiphyas postvittana 1
1524...Emmelina monodactyla 3
1862...Double-striped Pug Gymnoscelis rufifasciata 3
2182...Small Quaker Orthosia cruda 2
2187...Common Quaker Orthosia cerasi 5
2188...Clouded Drab Orthosia incerta 2
2189...Twin-spotted Quaker Orthosia munda 1
2190...Hebrew Character Orthosia gothica 4

A five card trick of Orthosia moths...Top left clockwise..Common Quaker, O. cerasi... Clouded Drab, O. incerta... Twin-spotted Quaker, O. munda...Small Quaker, O. cruda...Hebrew Character, O. gothica
The wine bet is on a downward spiral at present. 5 behind and soon to be more after Captain Matt Trappings blogs today. Well worth a look it's rumoured.
