I had the moth trap out on two nights. On the second night, in the garden, I caught over 130 moths but the species count was limited. There were almost 50 Hebrew Character moths and a similar number of Red Chestnuts. There were a few Powdered Quaker, and Early Tooth-striped, the first of the year. Powdered Quaker are hard to differentiate from Common Quaker. I am relying on the shape of the wing - Powdered pointed, Common rounded, but I might be wrong.

Otters? The trail camera picked up an otter on the 24th in the early morning by the holt, but we had no sightings otherwise.
