Not so busy tonight

I was out till midnight so I left the MBT set up ready for my wife to plug in once it started getting dark(9:30 apparently!), when I got back there wasn't much in the trap so I got the MV out and swapped them over. I was curious to see if the MBT caught anything the MV hasn't had recently but apart from 1 micro there wasn't anything different in there. It was a few degrees cooler at 12c and the sky was clear with a fairly bright half moon so it wasn't as busy as Wednesday night but a few new micros my first Codling and Peppered Moth of the year as well as another Lime Hawk(much nicer) made it all worthwhile.

MBT out from 9:30pm till 12:10am
