Is 'moth-summer' starting early?

Postby DonMatthews » Fri 12 May 2017 09:36

After a couple of weeks with very few moths, I was pleasantly surprised on Wednesday night to get 6 moths of 5 species and all were what i think of as 'early summer' rather than 'spring' species, including two Brimstone Moths, a Flame Shoulder and a Spectacle. The Brimstones were 2 weeks earlier than my first record last year and over 3 weeks earlier than in 2015 and all three of these species were at the front end of Mark's histograms. Is moth-summer coming early this year?
