Got the trap out last night, trying to take advantage of a bit of warmth before the predicted snow! Worthwhile as well with 5 species:

Common Quaker

Satellite (new for me)

March Moth
Hebrew Character
Dotted Border

This flightless female Dotted Border appeared on the wall this week as well.

Species numer 900

Polytrichum commune (Common Haircap Moss) from Ayelsbeare on Monday when I was visiting a student on placement. 900 isn't much to shout about but they do say that it is not the size that matters but if it gives you pleasure anyway.......

Damp woodland at Ayelsbeare that provided 3 moss ticks!
