A decent haul...............24/09/2009

An interesting evening. Quantity was down but quality up, with 2 more new for the trap. The Large Wainscot (above) is usually an inhabitant or reed beds or marshes. I think I owe this new one to Broom GPs just 1/2 mile away. Centre right is the Beaded Chestnut, found in the trap among many very similar Lunar Underwing. Although not new, it is the 1st photo I have managed to get. Bottom right is the rare immigrant Dark Sword-grass found for the 1st time under the egg boxes- very unexpected, another great find! I have now been trapping for just under 3 months and have recorded over 80 species of macro moth. Not bad for a village back garden! Also-

  • Shuttle shaped Dart
  • Pale Mottled Willow
  • Willow Beauty
  • Black Rustic
