By 7.30 we were emptying the traps and in total, had 13 moths as follows:
4 satellite, pink barred sallow (NFY) beaded chestnut, pale November moth, November moth, red green carpet, setaceous hebrew character, Acleris emargana and yellow line quaker. Also a female of the November moth ag, so unidentifiable.
Back home, at the Skinner 125MV just 4 moths, but still better than the last 2 nights which were blank. Moths were: common marbled carpet, November moth, green brindled crescent (f. capucina) and feathered thorn.
This takes the totals to 5789 parish moth records for the year, made up of 212 macro species and 182 micro species.
Tomorrow, could add a good number of micros as conducting a leaf mine survey of Millennium Wood, may add in excess of 20 species in a very short time.
