Birds are Quiet but Moths are Waking Up

CES visit No 4 completed this morning. The catch was a little disappointing (11 captures only) but about average for this visit over the years.

Hut Moth Trap
After the first relatively warm, calm and muggy night, the moth catch was nearly respectable - 59 moths of 19 species.  Most notable perhaps were two Shaded Pug which are a local speciality here.
