Moth trapping 6th April 2017

The moth trap was set up on the first time this year on the evening of 6th April and emptied the following morning. Mr Marriot kindly covered up the trap when he arrived in the morning so that our resident rooks couldn’t breakfast on our catch!

Nine moths of four different species were trapped, two of which were new species (shown in bold) for the school grounds:

1 Early Grey, 2 Clouded Drab, 5 Hebrew Character, 1 Shoulder Stripe.
