1st March 2013 ... Dotty about Spring

5 deg C at dusk on a calm overcast evening meant game on for the garden trap.
Half expecting the first Common Quaker/Hebrew Character/Clouded Drab/Satellite etc of the year I checked the trap at 2 glasses past Shiraz 'o clock.
Two moths on the wall near the trap justified the electric bill, a garden first appearance of  Dotted Border and the second garden record for Spring Usher.
Nothing more in or around the trap this morning, no Orthosia species, but the week ahead looks very favourable.

Agriopis marginaria ... Dotted Border
Agriopis leucophaearia ... Spring Usher


  1. Steaming ahead at the moment aren't you! Looking forward to next weeks temperatures!

  2. Tuesday and Wednesday look good. We might drop a trap off in Home Wood

  3. He always does this Ben, So it's all the more enjoyable when you catch him up and beat him at the end of the year!
