The End of Summer........
.........usually means the end of huge amounts of 'brown stuff' and heralds the beginning of more manageable numbers and the odd splash of colour.
Brown-spot Pinion f. rufa-pallida
I don't get many B-s P's anyway. But have never seen the aberrant form before.
Large & Small Ranunculus
Caught on 18th September, this is the first time I've ever caught both on the same night. Whereas Large Ranunculus have remained fairly constant (4-5 per year), Small Ranunculus have become much more common. The late second generation idividuals overlap with their larger name sakes.
A good year for these- this is my 3rd record so far.
