Tincleton, 19th February
A fine 13 species comprising many of the early Spring species, but with two out of hibernation - a single Ypsolopha mucronella and the rarely recorded (in Dorset, and new to the garden) Caloptilia populetorum. Trap out again tonight given the very mild conditions.

Warm weather so I ran my trap and caught 2 Early Moths and 1 Pale Brindled Beauty. Minimum overnight temp of 8.4 deg C.

Certainly mild enough to put a trap on and it produced: Acleris umbrana, an early Oak Beauty and Red-green Carpet. Best however a worn Tortricodes alternella. Possibly not recorded Weymouth/Portland before?
