23rd September 2016

Had my actinic lamp out in garden last night (down to 7 degrees but dry) and produced 35 moths of 13 species including both grey pine carpet and spruce carpet for comparison plus my first beaded chestnut of the autumn, plus angle shades and an early November moth agg. Large yellow underwings virtually all gone here now unless they weren't flying due to low temps?

By-catch included a red admiral! Quite a few in garden at the moment on the buddleias.
Cheers
Brian

Night of 4th Oct 2016

Actinic in garden last night produced 19 moths of 11 species including black rustic, green brindled crescent, blood-vein, angle shades and a brown-spot pinion. The last species would seem to be new for me despite being relatively common. Probably just over-looked them in the past as a beaded chestnut or similar.

Cheers
Brian
