Today's catch was 51 moths - the same as last time - but only eight species this time. I think this is a new low! But there were a couple of new ones - Frosted Orange
and Large Wainscot
(its caterpillars feed on Common Reed).
Dawn was misty.
Moth list this way...
- Setaceous Hebrew Character, 19
- Lunar Underwing, 15
- Square-spot Rustic, 6
- Snout, 4
- Brimstone Moth, 2
- Frosted Orange, 2
- Large Yellow Underwing

The only Frosted Orange I have ever seen were very worn specimens. It's nice to see a good one.ReplyDelete

Mmm, I can't get enough Frosted Oranges. I'm not sure whether I will run the trap again until spring now, unfortunately - depends on the weather!ReplyDelete
