|Moth trap and sheet|
A very mild and overcast night last night looked good for moths so I broke out a new sheet for under the trap. The white is an attractant, plus it makes finding moths that miss the trap much easier.
A nice catch this morning included a new species for me -
0688 Agonopterix heracliana 25
0701 Agonopterix ocellana 1
1663 March Moth (Alsophila aescularia) 3
1926 Pale Brindled Beauty (Phigalia pilosaria) 2
2139 Red Chestnut (Cerastis rubricosa) 1
2187 Common Quaker (Orthosia cerasi) 4
2188 Clouded Drab (Orthosia incerta) 3
2190 Hebrew Character (Orthosia gothica) 3
2243 Early Grey (Xylocampa areola) 4
2258 Chestnut (Conistra vaccinii) 4
50 moths of 10 species plus an unexpected visitor possibly attracted by the sheet looking like water in the trap light...
