A bit too windy

I tried an MV in local woodland last night and persevered for the usual three hours even though the trap was blown over at one stage!  Gusts of over 40mph meant that the air was quite turbulent even in what should have been a relatively sheltered environment.  The final count was just over 30 brave moths, of which Diurnea fagella and Oak Beauty were new for me for the year.
