|2281 Alder Moth Acronicta alni|
This is only the 20th record for Northumberland, and the earliest recorded by 20 days.
The new trap was made for £20 (not including electrics). The previous trap was bought ready made for £60 (not including electrics) and was pretty poor quality with plenty of gaps for moths to escape, and suffering from warping due to the thinness of the ply used. Thanks to Tom Tams for his power tools, joinery expertise, time, coffee and chocky bickies.
