So, the idea proved to be a good one as there were 25 moths on Monday and nearly 50 last night, though over half were Spring Ushers.
As would be expected, since we have only been trapping here since August, each month should produce new moths and January has now done so, though nothing that could not be expected.
In December I caught an early Pale Brindled Beauty and in the trap were several more of them, but in addition, their smaller, darker 'cousin', a Small Brindled Beauty (also a bit early). Their larger 'uncle' the Brindled Beauty is still to come.
You can compare the Small and Pale versions by clicking on the "Labels" on the right.
