22nd May 2010

A run of warm nights finally produced reasonable numbers of moths, with many new for the year. Of note were a well marked Oak-tree Pug, just the second garden record after one in 2007 was identified by dissection, and a female Muslin Moth, also just the second record here. A poorly marked Powdered Quaker caused some confusion as, in the hand, it looked very like an odd wainscot species.
