Gales in June ?

What's going on with the weather ?
It wasn't an option to fire up the traps last night, gale force winds and showers meant the traps were battened down instead.
Moths were the last thing on my mind as I went into the kitchen to make a cup of coffee, but the tiny moth that flew past the kettle and alighted on a nearby wall had to be potted up and examined ...
B.F. 240 ... Tinea pellionella, Case-bearing Clothes Moth
The wind is expected to lessen tonight but with clear skies in the VC30 area the bright full moon is not ideal.
I'll fire up the traps anyway, you never know.
