18th May 2012 ... Rain hampers a good night

Last nights minimum temperature was 11 degrees (10.9 to be exact) in The Dells garden, conditions were perfect until dusk, then down came the rain.
There was a brief respite for an hour around 22.30 but then it was light rain through until dawn.
Pity really, because there was plenty of activity around the traps, but despite the rain I had the best species tally so far this year.
