Monkwood NR 25th March

Friday night's effort at Monkwood NR Worcs had a slow start under mostly clear skies. The promised cloud finally arrived about 23:00 when we had nearly finished packing up (had to work Saturday!). 180 moths of 18 species in 4 traps included 3 Early Grey, 7 Twin-spotted Quakers, 2 Shoulder Stripe, 13 March Moth, 2 Engrailed, 20 Yellow Horned, Satellite, 13 Brindled Pug, 2 Early Thorn, 7 D. fagella, the expected Orthosias and the target - a single Blossom Underwing. A extra bonus was 7 Land Caddis.
