  1. Pretty good- I got hardly anything last night and no NFY.

  2. Lovely Red Chestnut buddy. I didn't run the trap last night and I am glad I didn't, it was so windy and quite cool with a clearing sky. Tonight though...could be good.
    Never had a Red Chestnut in the garden, or Yellow Horned/Frosted Green, but all 3 were annuals on my parents farm adjacent to woodland. Good luck guys, we are all pretty close at moment...until about June where I can't keep up!

  3. Nice!
    Don't worry Ben - only just got my first garden YH this evening :-)

  4. Only one YH record in my garden, that was 2 years ago

  5. Beating them off with sticks.............................................;)
