The Light Is On and Is Working (sort of)

The weather has started improving so have had a single trap out for a few nights in the first couple of weeks of March.  The results haven't been spectacular but at least I am getting some.  Here is a summary of what I have caught so far.

Summary for first half of March 2016

Code    Name
            Agonopterix sp.      - Agonopterix species  -  2
73.069 Xylocampa areola - Early Grey  -  3
73.244 Orthosia cerasi      - Common Quaker  -  6
73.249 Orthosia gothica    - Hebrew Character  - 10

Hopefully it will pick up a bit more as Spring seems to be starting.

The first 2 are of the Agonopterix Species although judging from the size they are probably Heracliana but you cant confirm without Gen Det procedure

 Early Grey
 Common Quaker
 Hebrew Character
Bet you cant wait for the end of March for my next report (REALLY)
