Warndon 1st February

A half decent night was forecast for Wednesday, so the 15w battery Actinic was again secreted in Warndon Wood at dusk and retrieved at 23:30. Light rain was evident from the start but did not become a problem. A Mottled Umber is getting late but 3 Spring Usher, 3 Tortricodes alternella and 10 Chestnuts made it worthwhile. Close by and just before midnight, a male Early Moth was torched in the perimeter hedge, which the council is hell-bent on making thinner every year.
