1st May 2012...Trail of the Lonesome Pine

Overnight min. temp. 9.2 deg, light breeze, fine drizzle late evening.
The late drizzle/heavy mist put the mockers on a promising night, but not before three more species were added to the year list.
Common Pug put in an appearance as expected, but a Pine Beauty in the trap was pleasing as I was beginning to think about consigning it to the "dipped out" file along with March Moth.
Incurvaria masculella was a year first for the micro tally.
