Two posts in one day - I don't think I've ever done that before! Anything to take my mind off the Villa result today - I can't believe how close we are coming to possible relegation. Any why was Albrighton (one of the better players on the pitch) substituted?
To return to moths here's a summary of the moths trapped last night
Summary of Moths Trapped on Friday, 18th March, 2011
Minimum Temperature -2.1 degrees centigrade
6.30 p.m. until dawn
15w Actinic Skinner Light Trap
1 x Dotted Border
1 x Common Quaker
1 x Clouded Drab
All species new for the year and Dotted Border was also a garden first.
My moth identification skills still leave much to be desired! So if I have misidentified either species please let me know. No photo of the Dotted Border which is a shame as it was a garden first but it was very flighty and flew away before I could click the shutter.
Total number of species trapped/seen in the garden 2009-2011 = 100 (finally reached a century!)
Total number of species trapped/seen this year = 4
Total number of individual moths trapped/seen this year = 4
Took another photo of the Super Moon as it is actually the Full Moon tonight although it doesn't look a lot different from last night's photo!
