Cool again.

Cold last night, down to 1 degree. Clear. As a result -

2139 Red Chestnut (Cerastis rubricosa) 2
2187 Common Quaker (Orthosia cerasi) 7
2188 Clouded Drab (Orthosia incerta) 5
2190 Hebrew Character (Orthosia gothica) 14

28 moths of 4 species.

The forecast is cool for the next few days, getting milder possibly on Friday, though that is still some way off. I'll leave the trap to rest until then, GMS night.

To summarise the garden catch for the first quarter of 2011 -

770 moths of  27 species.
(2010 first quarter - 203 moths of 14 sp)
