SUNDAY, 15TH FEBRUARY
First Garden Moth of the Year
I put out my moth trap (a 15w Actinic Skinner Trap) last night for the first time this year.
There was nothing in the trap but I did find this Spring Usher (Agriopis leucophaearia) close by on the house wall
(Sorry poor photo - the battery for my own camera was charging so attempted to use the new bridge camera and sadly I still haven't had the time to read the manual and get to grips with how it actually works!!).
Saturday, 14th February
Min Temp 4.7 degrees centigrade
Spring Usher x 1 (New for Year) and even better a New Species for the Garden!
