Friday 11th November

Very poor night and stayed much colder than the forecast until the rain arrived total catch:

3 X Light Brown Apple Moth (Epiphyas postvittana) 49.039
1 X November moth agg. (Epirrita dilutata agg.) 1795x
1 X Common Marbled Carpet (Dysstroma truncata) 70.097

I was even home from my usual Friday night out with Fareham Moth Group by 7:30pm as the catch was very poor to say the least, FYI we were at Wickham Common with a list of our moth catch below which came to our 4 lamps
