4th March 2015 ... Spring at last ?

Shhh !
Keep it under your hats, but it is looking like Mother Nature may have thrown the Spring switch.
Maybe some traps out this weekend, although there are usually some terms and conditions attached to the higher temperatures at this time of year, ie: Strong winds, full moon.
Last night was 8 deg at dusk, dropping sharply to minus 0.5 but still time to record the first macro moth to actually go inside the trap instead of the nearby walls, a year first Common Quaker, no doubt the first of many...

2187 ... Common Quaker
... and just one micro, Agonopterix heracliana, however I am optimistic about the weekend and looking forward to seeing plenty of moths on the blogs.
