All this good seawatching weather recently has been a death knell for moth trapping, but I have had a few before the winds swung north. One in particular was a new species for me and might be the most Northerly UK record to date -
|Clay Triple Lines.|
I used to record these in my first attempts at moth trapping in the 90s at Stobswood. They didnt occur in the county then and I was only using the Chinery insect guide for id purposes. I was clearly miss identifying Riband Wave of the non banded form....
More standard autumn species are the mainstay of the sessions -
|Yellow line Quaker|
|Canary shouldered Thorn, in short supply again this year.|
|Pink barred Sallow|
|Lunar Underwing of the plainer orange form.|
