Creigiau - Tuesday night

Conditions looked promising so out went the first mid-week box of the year. 8.2C minimum and mist rather than rain.

Ended up with 9 species (41 moths) in/around the box. Totally dominated by Common Quaker (17), but Oak Beauty (6)  made a first appearance of the year, as did Clouded Drab (4), Twin-spotted Quaker (1) and Double-striped Pug (1). The rest of the catch comprised Early Grey (5), Hebrew Character (5), Engrailed (1) and Small Quaker (1).
