More Recent Highlights........
As Summer starts to wind down the catch is becoming far more predictable with large numbers of grass moth species, Flounced Rustics and Underwings. There has been a few highlights, though I missed a couple of moth emptying sessions as I was helping the Heligoland Heroes in Buckton on Flamborough Head, East Yorkshire. See some of the progress on Mark Thomas' Blog. While I was away the Kids did the recording and as usual kept any 'specials' for me in the fridge. They did save a Six-striped Rustic,(19th August) but the photos didn't make the cut- click HERE for last year's effort.
NFY, 17th August with many more since.
461 Ypsolopha ustella
This is a difficult one as it has hardly any noticeable field marks. However a small white tuft of scales on top of the thorax and a general long winged appearance seems to lean towards this species. If confirmed it will be a Garden 1st, 18th August. Confirmed..........D. Manning
A real stunner and only my 2nd record. NFY 21st August.
I don't get many of these, so nice to record it early. Last year my 1st and last one was 31st October!
Only my 2nd Record, 23rd August.
1st record since 2009- NFY 23rd August.
