Inside, was carnage. Many were just unidentifiable, no scales left and translucent, albeit still able to fly. Unfortunately, many roosting on the lower parts of the egg boxes had drowned or were stuck to the cardboard and also unidentifiable. All in all, I was lucky to get to 43 species (20 macros, 23 micros) of 71 moths, with several new for the year records and one new for me: Ypsolopha scarabella. A well marked individual at that. See below. Also, new for me was a Coleophora hemerobiella.
New for the year were barred red which was badly worn but recognisable, Acleris asperana which a bird had tried to eat so some missing, see below and a late id from yesterday, Scorparia subfusca.
Numbers were supplied, inevitably,
by riband wave, dingy footman and Pleuropyta ruralis
