After several disappointing results from our garden trap, we set two traps in woodland at Ynys-hir last night. What a difference, over 100 moths with 22 macro species and 4 micros. The big surprise was a Dark arches, which is reported as having a partial second generation in the Autumn in the south. With this and the Small seraphim from a couple of weeks ago, could we be experiencing a warming climate? There were large numbers of "November" moths plus Red-green carpet, Grey pine carpet, Spruce carpet, Mottled umber, Green brindled crescent, 4 Merveille du jour (still hanging on), Feathered thorn, Chestnut, Northern winter moth, Silver Y, and a couple of December moths (for Ina). In the micros there was a Rusty-dot pearl, 3 Acleris ferrugana/notana, Crocidosema plebejana, and possibly Carpatolechia decorella which, if confirmed, will be a first for VC46.
