Back to the Mothin'.......29/08

After another short break to deal with a Wedding and a party it was back to the old routine. Though I did get a chance to tick the Red-backed Shrike just north of Biggleswade on 28th for a county 1st!
The mothing has a real Autumnal edge now with lots of wind, low minimum temperatures and the arrival of the 1st Sallows............

Centre-barred Sallow
1 of 2 caught.......

Vine's/Uncertain aberrant?
An odd looking one this.....the kidney marks have merged to form a wedge and it has little evidence of any other markings. Size wise, its about the same as one of the smaller Uncertains.....

  2. Flounced Rustic- 10
  3. Large Yellow Underwing- 6
  4. Turnip Moth- 4
  5. Setaceous Hebrew Character- 4
