23rd June 2009

What should have been an excellent mothing night was rather spoilt by a power cut in the early hours and lasting till dawn. The result was just 107 moths of 54 species in the two traps - I would have expected at least double this number. Three species were new for the year and I've added a photo of Red-barred Tortrix that I wasn't able to photograph previously.

Lesser Cream Wave:

Metzneria lappella:
