A very cold June night

Although I did trap last night, I didn't expect to catch very much, as by 10:00pm the temperature was already falling steeply and by 4:40am it had fallen to -.7c the coldest June night I have recorded in Commins Coch during the past eight years of recording the weather.

When I checked the trap this morning I did actually manage to catch five moths who I thought had all surrendered themselves and were holding white flags, but then I could see they were mainly all White Ermines.

  1. Wow, it really does get cold at Commins Coch!! It got down to 0.4c last night here, still didn't trap - not trapping again tonight.

    Not sure what's going on with June weather at the moment, we had a very heavy hail storm this morning!!

    Looks to be warming up next week though. :-)
