22 April 2012 - Warburg Reserve, Oxon
With a seemingly dry night ahead, I decided upon a quick Mothing request at the Warburg Reserve. Unfortunately the temps were down to 6oC when I left, so had little hope of anything special by the morning...
After a couple of Lesser Swallow Prominents, this Pebble Prominent was a welcome find. Purple Thorn was great as always.
Final moth of four traps - 2 x MVs and 2 x actinics, was this Scarce Prominent - new for me.
Last activity of the morning was a bit of pond dipping with Max - several newts and a few other odds and ends managed to jump in to the net...
