Cullaloe 27th March, 2015

A bit of a washout with fuse issues sidelining the MV traps and not much to show from the heath trap, whose battery seems to be on the wane. The only moth picked up by wandering around with headtorches was this lonely Hewbrew Character

Falkland Palace, 20/03/2015

Trap run from 18:45 to 21:00. A steady trickle, with one target species gathered for square NT20. One of the Satellites I found sitting on the bridge and resolutely stayed there, either oblivious to, or not caring about, the light. One of the other highlights was a flurry of stoneflies on the wooden bridge above the stream.

Office wall, 17/03/15 - Common Quaker

In the usual place. The second external wall light doesn't seem to have caught anything so far. I wonder what the difference is.

Office 'trap' strikes again

Wandering out to the baker's van for lunch I noticed that my office trap has worked again - this time a solo March Moth graced the wall. It seems that the wall only does one moth at a time, but that's better than nowt, and also better than my garden moth trap did last night (a few winter gnats only)

I only took one record picture before releasing it, although I should have checked the quality first!
