First Decent Moth Count

March Moth

Many thanks to Brian Neath for sending in his report of his first decent moth catch of the year in Wester Ross on 12th March. He recorded 35 Mottled Grey, 14 Common Quaker, 8 Yellow Horned, 6 March Moth, 3 Red Sword-grass, 2 Clouded Drab, 2 Chestnut, an Early Grey and a Hebrew Character.

Brain says that this was interesting because one of his regular Skye recorders had nothing on the same night and another recorder, Barry Blake, didn't have his trap out as the weather was so poor in Gairloch.
