With the temperature holding up here last night I finally got some moths attracted to the trap even though none actually made it into the trap. 4 Mottled Umber, 1 Winter, 1 Early and perhaps most surprisingly a Plutella xylostella. I also caught 2 of the latter on 28th December. Not a moth I get in large numbers here but I have now caught at least one each month apart from November since last April.

  1. Just reading the Ceredigion moth blog where 2 small Heath traps caught 200 moths last night with species numbers in double figures.
