Lower Ochrwyth - 29 March




A warm evening - still 10c until after mid-night and catch influenced by this. 92 moths of 17 species:

Common Quaker 43
Hebrew Character 10
Early thorn 3
March moth 4
Twin spotted Quaker 5
Small Quaker 5
Early Grey
Chestnut 3
Oak Nycteoline 2
Early Tooth-striped 2
Clouded Drab 3
Red Chestnut
Double-striped Pug 2
Brindled Pug
Agonopterix Heracliana 5
Diurnea fagella

And saving the best to last - Dotted Chestnut (Martin Anthony has advised: 11th County record, first for the west of the county - further evidence to suggest species is spreading given that 9 of 11 records are post 2000).
