The New Year..........12/01

The 1st meaningful Mothing of 2011 and after the addition of Winter Moth early in the month, I managed to add a couple more. I don't get many of these, so it's a welcome early scalp!

Dark Chestnut
During the day I also caught my 1st micro of the year too! A single Twenty-plume Moth (Alucita hexadactyla) was found in the workshop- probably disturbed from hibernation. This brings the year list to......well, 3!

  1. Off to a flyer there Matt. I would have had my trap on last night but I didnt get home until 11.30pm. On the way home lots of moths were in the headlights, most looked to be Winter Moth. Trap is on now though for a few hours...
