Bringsty last night

Just back from the sub-continent, I was disappointed to see the nights are forecast to be cool and last night wet. At the last minute I decided to run the white Robinson down the garden thinking I'd switch it off just before the rain came. Jet lag prevented that and I'm glad I ran it all night too. I'm not usually one for counting, but the tally from last night was: Yellow Horned 14, Small Quaker 6, Common Quaker 73, Oak Beauty 13, Hebrew Character 10, Early Grey 2, Dotted Border 1, Clouded Drab 3, Brindled Pug 1, Chestnut 2, Satellite 1, Red Chestnut 2, Shoulder Stripe 1 and Tortricodes alternella representing the micros on 1. At the house window probably Agonopterix heracliana, although it looks larger than usual so I will check the cilia later. Peter Hall

  1. Wow! Location, location, location - I don't think I'll bother to trap in my garden ever again!

    Hope you enjoyed your trip.

  2. You have to after introducing all those native plants.

    I'm also excited that the garden may be in a good spot after last night. Of course it could simply be the superior white trap versus the traditional black version! Time will tell.
