19th August 2011

The first Caloptilia stigmatella since 2008 was the highlight of a very busy night where nearly half of the catch 0f 567 moths were Setaceous Hebrew Characters. A very dark tort was easily identified as Eudemis profundana from its bright orange crest. A second Pyrausta despicata for the year was a better marked individual than I've had here before.
