9th Oct 2013 ... The North wind doth Blow

5+ degrees, and feeling very chilly in the stiff north wind.
A good blow and a cold snap is not always a bad thing in my garden at this time of year. It gets rid of the late summer stragglers and often produces a good moth for the year list.
Scarce Bordered Straw appeared in 2010 and 2011 during the first week in November during wet and windy conditions and both of those years were not good years for that species.
Large Wainscot was added to the garden tally and another Green-brindled Crescent was noted.
Very little else in the traps apart from stuff that was probably lurking in the nearby bushes, a residue from the previous night.
