Just the one trap (Twin 11w BL / 9w BLB) Under cover due to the impending St. Jude storm, name after the patron saint of lost causes and desperate cases ...
Anyway, it seems that the worst of the winds passed through a little further south of Beds.
40/50 mph gusts were the top end in the early hours.
Just 5 moths in the trap this morning, including a fourth Merveille du Jour and a second Feathered Thorn so far this year.
27th Oct. strong winds, 10 deg C minimum
0998 ... Epiphyas postvittana ... Light Brown Apple Moth x 2
1923 ... Feathered Thorn
2247 ... Merveille du Jour
2306 ... Angle Shades
Here's some useless information ........
SAINT JUDE.(Patron Saint of lost causes and desperate cases)
|St. Simon the Zealot|
Died: 65 or 107
Simon was surnamed the Zealot for his rigid adherence to the Jewish law and to the Canaanite law. He was one of the original followers of Christ. Western tradition is that he preached in Egypt and then went to Persia with St. Jude, where both suffered martyrdom. Eastern tradition says Simon died peacefully at Edessa. His feast day is October 28th the same day as St. Jude.
