Norfolk moths: Rockland St. Peter garden moths, 8 December 2013

After a day of fairly strong south-westerly winds, the night was similar to the preceeding one, with a moderate breeze from dusk until dawn. Fairly warm: 7.8°C at 17h30, 7.6°C at 20h00 and 6.2°C at 07h00. Once again, a partially cloudy sky with a last-quarter moon.

Nothing in the trap, but a solitary Emmelina monodactyla saved the night by coming in to rest on the kitchen window in the early evening.

No macro-moths; micros (1 moth of 1 sp.):- 

Emmelina monodactyla Common Plume 1
