I'm Back...

Well the computer has returned with a new case and seems to be working ok, though my emails are still cocked up so I'm getting a man in...

Last nights moths -


Taxa
0288  Caloptilia stigmatella  1 NFY 2nd for garden 3rd VC68 record
0672  Parsnip Moth (Depressaria heraclei)  1
0688  Agonopterix heracliana  1
1746  Shoulder Stripe (Anticlea badiata)  2 NFY
1750  Water Carpet (Lampropteryx suffumata)  2 NFY

Total 43 moths of 11 sp.

Even though this is the best catch so far this year, it shows how bad things really are. I should have had a few catches over the ton by now...Still I was please with the little Caloptilia...I'll ad a pic tomorrow.

Welcome back Stewart.
Things are pretty dire at the moment even out in mature woodland.

Cheers chaps.

Matt - Do you not get Water Carpets? Normally very common here throughout April - May but not this year.
