New Moths...

Cochylimorpha straminea

Small Autumnal Moth ( The only Epirrita sp on the wing this early)


Bulrush Wainscot (male)

Large Yellow Underwing ( not new, the most common ubiquitous moth in the UK found everywhere. Its taken until today for me to get around to photographing one).

Despite the cool and clear night 49 moths of 20 species were recorded, including the new ones above. This takes me to 298 sp for the year in the garden. Now that the Yellow Underwing species are going over, large catches have gone with them. Still, that leaves room for some nice new autumn species...

I bet you`re glad to see the back of the LYU`s.
