I'm down to one trap now which will continue henceforth.
My garden is a tad too small to support two traps and it takes so much time to log it all.
Not only that, looking at past records has convinced me that there is no gain species-wise, but the numbers of common species goes up and it gives me no pleasure to record an extra 30 Large Yellow Underwings or Hebrew Characters.
This year has been poor with many expected species missing from the year list but last night produced a third record of Frosted Orange for the garden....
