A bit of moth action at last...

As the night was forecast to be dry and mild in Bridgend I thought I'd set the trap for the first time for a couple of weeks. 2 chestnuts and an early moth and this micro which was unfortunately upside down in a puddle at the bottom of the trap following unexpected rain overnight. Any ideas please?!


  1. Hi there buddy.
    You have a Tortricodes alternella.
    I had some last night, and yes most of mine were in awful condition, but alas one was absolutely perfect as you can see from the photo on my blog.
    All the best

  2. I agree. Incidentally, I've added Ben's Essex Moths Blog to the list on the right!

  3. Thanks both - the one on your blog is definitely in better condition than mine Ben!
