Pilmoor, Friday 6th May 2016

The first full weekend off for ages and actually coinciding with a bit of decent weather.  A night with high cloud and no visible moon, calm and temperature at +12 at 2100 dropping to +7 by 0500.  Not many moths buzzing around but at least the biting midges were not in evidence at all - hooray!

1852  Brindled Pug (Eupithecia abbreviata)  4

1951  Grey Birch (Aethalura punctulata)  12

Hopefully the start of a few more attempts at mothing, and really must try harder than the last couple of years.
