The 3rd new for parish records moth for 2017 was a micro: Epermenia chaerophyllela taken in the garden on the 6th.
New for year records have been: Least Black arches, Aphomia sociella and Agonopterix arenella, all taken last night (9th) at Pigs Green. Water carpets appear to be having a good year, with my 8th and 9th also taken in Pigs Green last night. An unusual moth for me, Lunar marbled brown was taken here also, only my 3rd record and the 2nd this year. In total, last night gave up 18 moths of 11 species from the heath trap.
This moves the totals along to 444 moths of 42 species, 30 macro and 12 micro.
