The moth trap has been very quiet of late with clear starry skies bringing low overnight temperatures. The only new moth for the garden since Sunday has been an Acleris sparasana, a rather dull grey micro.
Apart from that, a rosy rustic, willow beauty and spectacle have been more noteworthy than the regular setaceous hebrew characters, lunar underwings, common marbled carpet and brown spot pinions.
However, tonight looks slightly more promising as the temperature is still 14C at 9pm. So far, a common marbled carpet, lunar underwing and setaceous hebrew character!!
