Its a while since I have posted any moths on here, so this is a photo blog of some recent ones...
|The Olive. A rare garden record, my third.|
|Top - Dark Marbled Carpet, bottom - Common Marbled Carpet showing clinching underwing of DMC compared to the obvious CMC.|
|Rush Veneer a scarce migrant here.|
|Another scarce migrant, Rusty Dot Pearl.|
|Sallow, I like this one on Fox and Cubs.|
|This drab creature is a first for Northumberland, a Leek Moth. Always good to get a county first.|
|Only my second ever Red Underwing avoiding the trap altogether. Bait especially laid out for this and Old Lady. The latter still not on the Howick list.|
|Scarce Bordered Straw, a garden first of this rare migrant up here.|
|Dark Spectacle, the latest county record by 1 day.|
|My second Northumberland first, a Feathered Ranunculus. A macro first! Get in....|
|Everyone's fave, Merveille du Jour.|
|Red line Quaker.|
Something for everyone there Stewart.
Beautiful moths, I am interested to know have your numbers been down this year ?
Steve - Yes, there always is, a veritable pick n mix.
Amanda - I think slightly down though there have been a lot of interesting species this year.
