Moth Night starts with a whimper

Awful must be Moth Night 2012!

Just 9 species in the garden trap last night for the start of Moth Night 2012, compared with 31 species on Tuesday night when it briefly seemed like summer. I may as well list last night's catch in full: Heart & Dart (7), Mottled Beauty, Small Dusty Wave, Cinnabar, Angle Shades, Uncertain, Celypha striana (2), Eudonia angustea and Ditula angustiorana.

I've cancelled the planned trapping at Parc Slip tonight due to the forecast of strong winds.
