I've now run the 125w MV moth trap for three nights in the back garden. Already things are looking very promising with a few unexpected visitors appearing on the egg boxes. Two macros stand out, thus far. A Delicate was a very pleasant surprise, an Oak Rustic was even more so. It's a new species for me and there aren't too many of those likely to turn up in our Dumpton garden?

who confirmed my id.
Another couple of Rusty-dot Pearls and two micros which need further study about sums up the catch report. So long as it remains mild, I will continue to run the light. Happy days - well nights actually!
