Moth Shopping...

No trapping last night but I checked the walls of the local Spar shop this morning. They have a few bright security lights near the small car park...

1799  Winter Moth (Operophtera brumata)  1
1960  Early Moth (Theria primaria)  3

Its a good spot this for moths early and late in the season, when first light coincides with the time I'm normally out and about. I wouldn't want to be seen prowling around here at 4am in the summer though...


  1. My spot (Matalan) as none of the exterior lights working anymore. Bit of a shame really, cos i was always guaranteed a moth or two after a mild night.

  2. Its a pity that Dean, get a complaint in! It was you and them lights that got me to the Spar in the first place.
