I tend not to do much moth trapping in the winter, too cold, too wet you know the score, so it wasn't much of a surprise to get a new moth on Saturday morning. Despite heavy overnight rain, the trap did get 9 moths of which pale brindled beauty was new and I hadnt seen many twin-spot quakers. Role on the warn nights of summer!

It has been a bit too windy recently to open the nets in the garden so it was nice to catch 4 siskins on Sunday. A very 'rosey' redpoll sp managed to evade the nets which was a bit annoying.
