At least it's a start !

I missed the warm evening of the 5th Jan , too busy watching Liverpool struggle to beat lowly AFC Wimbledon in the FA Cup.
Better late than never tho, trap on at 11.00 pm and although I missed the best part of the evening I managed to get 2015 started with a 464 Diamond-back Moth and a 998 Light Brown Apple Moth.
464 Plutella xylostella, Diamond-back Moth
This is the first time I have recorded P. xylostella in January, but no surprise as Nov and Dec 2014 saw record numbers.

998 Epiphyas postvittana, Light Brown Apple Moth
 E. postvittana is recorded pretty much all year round in my garden which has established apple trees
