The arrival of the warm weather has meant that suddenly the mothing in my central Oxford urban garden has stepped up a gear. I've gone from catches of single digits up to the giddy heights of 27 moths yesterday. As well as the usual fare there were lots of Double-striped Pugs, 2 Early Thorns and a couple of garden firsts with a Herald and a Small Quaker. I can also report lots of Scarlet Tiger larvae in the garden over the weekend.
