Recent Trapping

The table above shows the my recent traps (click to enlarge), certainly starting seeing some spring species, along with good numbers of the usually for this time of year. Fairly good numbers of micro for this time of year also.

The highlight of the week was caught last night: Acrolepia autumnitella; a very pretty micro moth which turned out to be a county first. I believe the moth is a leaf mine species and is fairly well distributed across the UK, it seems to fly most of the year round which is interesting.

  1. Watch out everyone, Douglas has kicked off 2012 with a new county record. He obviously intends to carry on this year, where he left off last year.

    Keep up the good work Douglas.
