A quick update from the week just gone.
I ran the trap on Wednesday night (well I swapped my 125w MV bulb for a 40w Actinic because a) to try another light source and b) to save a bit of leccy in the process)
The return was just a single Sprawler, oddly exactly the same as a friend of mine in Rayleigh.
Better was 3 Emmelina monodactyla's and an Angle Shades at works 30w Security light....how odd that this attracted more in a town centre than my Actinic and MV efforts recently!
I got a report of a White Ermine just a few days ago from David Kirk in Hemel Hempstead, and a few more reports of Pale Brindled Beauties....nature definitely is totally and utterly confused this year!
I won't bore you with comparisons of epic proportions, but last year did fare better in my garden during November as this post proves
And here are some pictures to remind us of how good a year we had in Herts...
