May 2010

I've just had the results of moth dissections for the year back from my county recorder. They add over 50 species to the year list (now 485), an impressive 15 species are new to the garden list (now at 718) and 3 are new to the county. Where I have photos of species not previously posted I'll post them here under the month in which they were trapped.

Nemapogon granella (new county record):

Cosmiotes freyerella:

18th November 2010

By interesting coincidence this moth was at the same upstairs window as the Acleris logiana from last week. By further coincidence it is the second garden record of Scarce Umber - the first record was trapped at the same window 4 years ago.

13th November 2010

Attracted to an upstairs window this tort proved by gen det to be the second county record of Acleris logiana.

12th November 2010

A small let-up in the cold/wet/windy conditions overnight tempted me to put the trap out. Just two moths - The Brick and a nice form of Dark Chestnut.

5th November 2010

On what may well have been one of the last trapping nights of the year it poured with rain but was warm and the strong wind of the past few days dropped. Just three moths made it to the trap - Feathered Thorn, November Moth and The Sprawler, the latter being just the third garden record and the first since 2006.
