Westcott, Bucks

The last two trapping sessions in the garden have produced reasonable returns for January.  Wednesday night seemed to be particularly suitable locally for the few moths that fly at this time of year and I had Epiphyas postvittana (1), Pale Brindled Beauty (5), Spring Usher (1) & Early Moth (2) to the actinic light, while last night produced Pale Brindled Beauty (2), Spring Usher (1), Early Moth (1) & Satellite (1).  The Satellite takes me to 12 adult species so far this year, which is one ahead of the same point in 2019, so things are ticking along quite nicely at the moment.
