January Moths 2021 (3 Viewers)


Well-known member
I've had the trap out a couple of times this month, so far without any catch (it is on now). Tonight I went for a post work walk up the lane out of the village and checked out the hedges and local wood. I was looking for Early Moth but found none. I did find 36 male and 9 female Winter Moths on trunks of hornbeam, gean and birch. Also, a Dark Chestnut probing a split sloe berry.


Bah humbug
I ran the trap on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd, but nothing, and it was just getting colder so haven't trapped since. It's now going milder, but strong winds and rain!

Also had White-shouldered Clothes Moth a few weeks ago ...
