9th July 2010

Moth numbers down a little from previous nights with 372 moths of at least 104 species. One species was new for the garden and a further 19 were new for the year.

A second garden record of The Blackneck was rather spoilt when the moth escaped before I could photograph it. I've cheated by including a photo of the previous individual, caught in 2006.

Stenoptilia pterodactyla, nfg, the white marking on the costa can be seen in the 2nd photo:

Oak Eggar, female, second garden record:

Brown-tail, last recorded in 2008:

Peppered Moth ab. carbonaria, first garden record of this form:

Epiblema foenella, first record since 2008:

The Blackneck:
