Bridgend garden - trapping 16th March 2014

Our second trapping of the year was a good one with two new species for the garden in Oak Beauty and Pine Beauty. This followed another first in the form of Pale Pinion in our first trapping of the year on 08 Mar14. Over the years we've either been busy with kids or the weather has been poor. So we are exploring March mothing properly for the first time in real terms.

MV trapping produced:- 1 Brindled Beauty, 1 Oak Beauty, 1 Pine Beauty, 3 Common Quaker, 2 Clouded Drab, 4 Hebrew Character, 1 Pale Pinion and 6 Early Grey.

The three new species take our garden list to 349 (254 macro) since we moved here in 2004.
