Back in December I said one of my hobbies was "Mothing". This involves catching, identifying and then releasing the moths I find in the garden. I've only run a moth trap a few times so far this year, and up until yesterday with no success. Last night yielded my first two moths of the year, two Common Quakers, a common moth that flies early in the year. They have a wing span of about 3.5 cm so are considerably smaller than most butterflies.
