Bringsty Common March 15th

Remembered to put a trap out on the 15th, albeit for only 3 hours as I had an early start next day. 12 macro species and 2 micros.  Micros were Agonopterix heracliana and ciliella.  I have good colonies of both these species here. Topping the garden bill for macros was Common Quaker with 31 individuals, followed byYellow Horned with 18. Just 1 Small Quaker.  All the other arrivals were to be expected.  73 moths in total. A few days off now it's turned much colder again. Peter Hall
