4th Oct 2012 .. Garden Traps

9.2 deg. min. temp.
Steady rain all night.
Traps under cover.

Almost an inch of rain fell last night but I've learned from the past that the moths around here just seem to carry on.
The warm night prompted me to fire up both traps and it never ceases to amaze me how so many end up in the covered traps (with limited light output) in heavy rain.
Last year I chopped down my leylandii trees (good riddance) and wondered how the Blair's Shoulder-knot would fare.
No problem.... 7 in the traps last night !
