Too cold, too clear...

Brimstone Moth
Brimstone Moth
Well, last night's moth trapping was unspectacular, with 57 moths caught. Square-spot Rustics, Large Yellow Underwings and Setaceous Hebrew Characters are starting to dominate proceedings.

Though I keep getting a trickle of other odds and sods too, so I shall persevere in the hope of catching something interesting.

Moth list follows...
  • Setaceous Hebrew Character, 18
  • Square-spot Rustic, 16
  • Large Yellow Underwing, 9
  • Common Rustic/Lesser Common Rustic, 4
  • Brimstone Moth, 2
  • Cabbage Moth, 2
  • Lesser Yellow Underwing, 2
One each of:
  • Lesser Broad-bordered Yellow Underwing
  • The Spectacle
  • Willow Beauty
