Southerly winds

I'm not sure if anyone reads this Blog in December, but just in case you do - please trap on any mild nights with southerly winds as there are plenty of interesting migrants that might just come our way (Synchopacma polychromella and Euchromius ocellea to name two).  Similar winds, albeit in October, gave Nick Felstead his Etiella zinckenella so these rare migrants can reach us here in Gwent!

Having said that, my MV trap was totally empty last night.  Things were saved slightly by the porch light producing 1 Northern Winter Moth (only my 2nd here in 15+ years) alongside 2 Winter Moth.
