30th March 2017

Put the Trap out last night and with near perfect conditions for this time of year had a pretty god haul both qty and species with 1 new for garden and a few new for year. Unfortunately with the strong breeze this afternoon the Streamer and Engrailed got away before I could take a picture of them and another got away before I could ID. Apologies for the blurred images on a couple as I said it is quite windy out there.
