22nd Jan 2014

2 moths added for the year ...
The mild conditions (10 deg daytime) encouraged  a Hebrew Character to my shed light. This was my earliest garden record.
Last year, Hebrew Character was first recorded on 7th April, a reflection of the unusually cold spring.
0998 Epiphyas postvittana
2190 Hebrew Character
