Trench Actinic on 9th

With the garden being rather poor in recent nights it was off to Trench Wood NR on Friday with the 15watt battery actinic skinner stashed for 6 hours in a quiet corner. 12.5 degrees, overcast with drizzle at end. 5+ Scarce Umber, 16 Mottled Umber, 4 December Moths, 9 Feathered Thorn, 
19+ Winter Moths and what looks like a Northern Winter Moth made for a great last field session of the year.

  1. Yes, I think my moth kit will go into storage now. January/February visits to anywhere will be using a flashlight only I think. I did a quick session at Haugh last night (2 hours was enough for me) and also have a possible Northern Winter to check over tomorrow, along with the one I caught here 2 nights earlier. I hope they are, I want to create a comparison image for the Mothdissection Website
