Recent Records – this will not take long.

Postby melbellingham on Wed Feb 17, 2021 10:42 am

The Winter GMS has been a succession of blank returns since Jan 16 when I recorded a single Chestnut. Not surprising considering some of the overnight temperatures.

28/01/2021 and 04/02/2021 – Chestnut.

05/02/2021 – Pale Brindled Beauty and Spring Usher.

16/02/2021 – Oak Beauty. Back in 2003 when I constructed my first MV trap this species was the first capture,
so I'm always pleased to see it.
