20th April 2013 ... Garden Traps report

No new moths to add from the garden traps, zero degrees for Friday and last night didn't help but the daytime sunshine has been quite warm and lots of activity was noted.
Yesterday and this morning saw 4 species of butterfly, Brimstone, Small Tortoiseshell, Small White and Peacock.
Lots of large and small Bumblebees and a healthy population of Bee Flies.
Only one moth to add to the year list which was nowhere near the traps, instead it was buzzing around my guests in the lounge room and narrowly avoiding attempts to swat it ... Tinea pellionella, Case-bearing Clothes Moth.

No flowers yet on the Hebe for this large Bumble Bee (above) which I think is Bombus lapidarius.

Last nights trapping included this Early Thorn, my second this year .......
