SP9326: W/Ending 26/02/12 - first moths of the year

A mild snap saw the traps out for the first time this year. Two attempts with the 'Heath' produced nothing. Using the 'Ratface' Skinner on the 24th, however, resulted in the first moths since November '11 - two Tortricodes alternella were new* for the garden, a common moth of the tortrix family flying from February to April.
