Put the trap out as I said but turned very cold with a light frost, however still had a few moths and will try again over the next few nights when it is predicted to warm up a few degrees at night. Below is the list of the catch. Today I am off out to try and find some Pearl Bordered Fritillary Larvae before they pupate and if I’m lucky enough to find any I will post some pictures.
