20th April 2017

Here are some moths from yesterday most from the trap and a couple were see flying in the garden, with such a mild night last night it has bought out the micro’s. I still have a couple to ID and may be new for garden I have also had a few new for year. I will post others with an update once I can confirm ID. Also had a Common cockchafer which when in full season could mean I have 10-15 in the trap
