Scorched Carpet

I don't know what's going on with the moths at the moment - the day's are warm enough but the clear (and slightly chilly) nights are surely not that bad to bring about the woeful catches that are being experienced. Single figure macro totals for early May is not what we expect - I've had higher counts in December and January as I have had over the past three nights! As some form of compensation was this beautiful Scorched Carpet, annual here at Banstead but erratic in appearance.

I've not seen any significant moths at all yet! Lots of clothes moths plaguing houses like my folks' though

A warm evening in a country pub garden will sort that out Simon - plenty of moths to light!
