11th July 2010

A much cooler night but although rain was forecast it didn't materialize. Numbers were well down in the MV trap with half the moths of the previous night but interestingly the actinic actually performed better with c60 more moths of 9 more species.

Six species were new for the year including the second garden records of Mere Wainscot and V-Pug. Unfortunately the pug was dead in the bottom of the trap. I've also included a photo of a Double Lobed together with a Common Rustic trying to look like a Double Lobed.
