Small improvements

I've tried MBT, MV and actinic in the last month and only attracted 1 moth which was a Pale Brindled Beauty, tonight the forecast promised a slightly warmer evening but failed to deliver on that promise with the temperature dropping to 2c soon after midnight. I put the actinic out in the garden out of hope but didn't expect to catch anything so the 2 micros I found in the trap were a very welcome surprise....not that I have any idea what either of them are!


  1. Hi Ian

    1. Tortricodes alternella

  2. Thanks Ben, it looks like the weather is starting to improve so hopefully I'll soon have more than a couple of micros to report.
