Blown away

Very windy tonight, supposedly we're getting the tail end of 'Hurricane Billy' but whatever it was it seems to have put the moths off flying for the night. A few braver specimens did land on or around the trap but most of them didn't stay for long once the wind started up, there wasn't much in the trap at the end of the night and certainly nothing new so I'll share a photo of Amblyptilia Acanthadactyla with you this time.
The trap was out from 8:45pm to 3:30am
