Spring Usher

While there might seem to have been fewer garden moths around than usual to get 2014 started, looking back over the last couple of years shows that it really is no different to normal here at Westcott, Bucks where I'm lucky to get more than the very occasional specimen of anything before late-February. Last night (Friday) seemed suitable enough to run the actinic trap for a few hours from dusk without danger of it floating or being blown away and I was rewarded with a single Spring Usher.  Dave Wilton

  1. Nice one, Dave - not had one here in Aylesbury yet, just a handful of Pale brindled beauties and Early moths at lamps over Fairford leys, and nothing to my garden trap apart from a few Gnats.
