8th March 2017 Things picking up

Still not feeling great and have been off work this week, anyway even though it rained most of yesterday I thought I would chance putting the trap out and had a great result with one new for garden, the Tawny Pinion and a few new for the year Pictures and list of species below. As things are picking up with the Quantity of species and if I feel up to it I will put the trap out again as it supposed to stay dry and mild over the next couple of days.
