New garden with more moths!

Cheers from Norway all!

Last autumn I moved to a new place not far from my former. I've noticed that moth-trapping seems better at the new site, despite only being a tiny kilometer away. Read my update in the garden moth challenge from May 2013. The vegetation is better, with spontanious trees surrounding the garden rather than Sitka Spruce. Have a look at the garden moth gallery here.

The highlight of the year so far, an Oak-tree Pug trapped 7th of May 2014. This was the first county record, and the northernmost in Norway.

I am doing a #microbigyear in my garden in 2014, doing an effort identifying most of the animals I find. I am closing in on 200 species. The moth list so far contains of 57 species up to 8 May 2014, including four aggs:
