Mothing Morning


With this morning's event cancelled, Ro and I recorded the catch alone. The warm weather ensured a good catch as follows:-
  There were 34 macro species and at least 6 micros.
Highlights were the attached plus Swallow Prominent, Flounced Rustic, White Point, Garden Carpet, Lychnis, Rosy Rustic and Beautiful Hook-tip.
However the Common Wainscot stole the headlines - we had never recorded as many as 88 moths of one species before!
