March Moths.

Last night (NE.London) was almost humid, thus I ran the UV light and produced a haul that would have beaten a lot of nights that I have previously experienced at a later date.....so better late than never was my maxim. Circa 30 moths of perhaps 20 species...with a few that I'm unable to ID, however the highlight for me was a newly emerged ''Streamer''.....a garden/life first! To include...Lunar-Marbled Brown x2, Red Green Carpet, Oak Beauty, Twin-Spotted Quaker, Common Quaker, Clouded Drab, Lead-coloured Drab, Satellite, Hebrew Character, Powdered Quaker, Early Grey plus several Pugs and sps.

Cheers

29th and 30th were also my best March nights ever. 46 moths of 9 species and 45 moths of 10 species. I've recorded 15 species so far this year of which 4 have been new for my garden. A really good start to the year so far.
