The first time I've felt it worthwhile putting out the traps for a week - first up the battery was flat on the 12v Actinic - not a promising start !! However, I reached the dizzy heights of 9 moths in the MV trap this morning - 4 Hebrew Characters, 3 Muslin Moths (all males as usual), 1 Clouded Drab and 1 Early Grey - none new this year. Best catch since 8th. April - so it could have been worse (but not much).
Like John, I saw a few butterflies out and about in the sunshine yesterday - Brimstones, Orange Tips and an unidentifiable White (too far away). Our ponds are filling up nicely afer all the rain, so I'm quite happy about the wet weather (probably the only person in the UK who is). Lots of Slow-worms and a Grass Snake out as well. Spring must be here (well maybe).
