With the increase in daytime temperature and a reasonable, if breezy, forecast for the evening, a couple of hours with the 160MVB over a sheet at Pilmoor beckoned. The temperature remained at 8C, although there was still traces of rutted snow on the track, and the track was rather wet underfoot.
In addition to the lamp and sheet, I used the 2 x 22w Gladiator and promptly managed to blow one of the bulbs, but it still did ok with just the one bulb. The total catch in 2 hours early evening produce seven Tortricodes alternella, 15 Pale Brindled Beauty, and four Spring Usher.
