4th Jan 2013, Garden Trap & Home Wood

The mild conditions continue with min temp of 8 deg overnight.
A disappointing 6 moths of 3 species were in and around the garden trap ...
Light Brown Apple Moth x 3
Emmelina monodactyla  x 2
Dark Chestnut
Nothing new for the year list and already 1 behind in the Wine Race.

Matt dumped a battery powered twin Blacklight/actinic into Home Wood  last night and we checked it out this morning.
18 Early Moth
  2 Chestnut
  1 Acleris sp. for ID (below)

My guess would be Acleris logiana ?


  1. Agree on logiana.
    At least you are getting some moths! I have had just the one to my garden trap so far this year, boohoo.

  2. You're only 3 behind me and 4 behind Matt .... early days :)
