Bringsty Common April 7th

Remembered to put 1 trap out overnight.  Not bad even with temperatures dropping in to single digits fairly quickly.  179 moths of 17 species.  The species lists slowly change with time as new for the site for this year are Early Thorn, Early Tooth-striped, Streamer, Water Carpet and Pine Beauty.  Top of the list was Common Quaker (51), followed by Hebrew Character (33), then Small Quaker (29) and Clouded Drab (23). A single micro: Diurnea fagella, which is odd considering the numbers of Agonopterix heracliana that come to the nearby house windows every night, but not to the trap.  Peter Hall
