22nd April 2013 ... Garden Traps report

A chilly gusty wind for most of the evening kept the numbers down, especially the micros, but it was still warm enough at 7.5 deg minimum.
The usual moths were present with only a Satellite to add to the year list.
The Clouded Drabs are looking a bit worn now and the Satellite looked older than Telstar .
My actinic 11 watt PL trap has been downgraded from 4 lamps to two lamps as it was lighting up the neighbours upstairs windows. This will also save me around £80 per year and it doesn't appear to have affected the catch ... everyone's a winner.
