The weather at night recently has been pretty bad, and when it hasn't been raining, it's been absolutely freezing with no cloud cover. As a result I haven't dared put the trap out in the gaden, but being so desperate for year ticks, I had no choice but to put it out last night and see if I could get anything.
To be honest, it was the best turnout the garden has seen this August, with around 20 moths of 6 species seen by 1am.
These included 2 year ticks...
