VC30 survey: Chicksands Wood......08/08
A really good night with perfect conditions for trapping. In the end 60 species of macro caught with many micros potted and taken away for analysis. Among the best were Twin-spotted Wainscot, Poplar Lutestring, Square-spotted Clay and many suspected Triple-spotted Pugs, if so a 2nd reliable site in Bedfordshire for this rare moth.
Many trapped on the night.
As the name suggests..........Common!
Again, many caught.
Dark-barred Twin-spot Carpet?
A probable, but can't be proven without gen check.
