Moth trapping

A mildish, overcast night on on Wednesday/Thursday encouraged me to put the trap out in our Fairlight garden for the first time this year. Four moths of four species resulted: Light Brown Apple Moth. Brindled Pug, Small Quaker and Diurnea fagella [pictured]- all common early spring species. These are my only moth records for the year so far apart from two species in Hastings Country Park at the picnic site toilet block lights: Dotted Border and Pale Brindled Beauty. It seems the latter is a first for this site, reflecting a lack of early trapping-this was on Feb 22.
