A drop in temperature and a drop in wattage A run of cold, clear nights at the middle of last week made sure that the trap was switched off.

Come last Friday, the trap was back on but the temperature was still a little cool for my liking.

Therefore i've devised a plan that if it's predicted to be cool and clear then I will run the 125w bulb, but if it looks 'good' (which in my book is cloudy and minimum 8-10c) then the 250w clear and frosted bulbs get some action.

There were just two new for year species in the trap, but observed in the daytime were a further 3 which bolstered the list a little more.

Garden species count for 2018 now upto 98.

Here is last Friday's new for year species.
