A great start to the Mothing Year Stewart. You've certainly trapped a lot more species than I have!

The pine beauty has lovely markings

Like how you have set this out, and their numbers. Great help for me as it's first year doing GMS. Good to see what you are catching. It would be nice to see every months catch like this... Thanks

Thanks all.
Amanda, I will post each month with a collage of sample pics.The list of numbers comes from my Mapmate a data base for recording moths for submission to the county recorder, its really good for searching to see what you have caught over the years.

Amanda Peters said...

This will be a great help as I've joined in the GMS for the first time this year.

Great stuff Amanda, I trap at least 4 nights a week so have done the GMS for 8 years now, its quite straight forward...enjoy.
