Mottled Umber, 13/01/2011
Friday, 17 January 2014
I see that there are already scores on the doors for 2014. I will get started some time, but for the moment I remain mothless. I am entirely unsurprised by this though. This will be my 15th full year of trapping in the garden, and in the preceding 14 years I've only recorded a total of 14 individuals of 7 species. In fact that stat would be even poorer if it wasn't for an unprecedented mild spell in January 2011, when I recorded 7 individuals of 5 species including my only garden record to date of Mottled Umber. I will only be concerned if I am stuck on zero at the end of Feb!
