1st August 2011

Another warm and humid night produced a good crop of moths, although not in the huge numbers I'd expect at this time of year. Several species were new for the year and two were new for the garden. The beautiful tort Lozotaeniodes formosanus has long been near the top of my most wanted list and didn't let me down when it finally appeared. There have been a few reports of Marbled Clover being seen in Cambridgeshire in the past few days - presumably straying from their stronghold in the Brecks - but it was still a great surprise to find one in the trap this morning.
