The surge in temperature along with a promised lack of rain, encouraged me to run the Radnage garden MV trap last night.
By 9pm a male Oak Beauty and male Pale Brindled beauty were at rest close to the trap. A micro, probably heracliana ; visited the back door light. A Common Quaker added to the haul by 10.30pm and overnight a very melanic Dotted Border male plus 2 Chestnuts were present. On the Chiltern scarp in Radnage, rhe catches tend to be a week or two behind those reported by the Travelling Wiltonbury.
