Thought I'd start a new thread for this season - now that it has started with 4 Common Quakers and 2 Hebrew Characters trapped last night!

Switched the trap off early as rain has started a couple of hours before expected. Only a single Hebrew Character in trap.

My two favourite Moths so far Geoff and both from your trap. Here's hoping for some more goodies in the weeks to come.
