Silver Hook

A single Heath trap at Ynyslas last night produced plenty of moths including a Silver hook, 3 Galium carpet, 3 Hedge rustic, Chinese character (2nd generation), 5 Pebble prominent, and 8 White-line dart.

  1. How exciting to catch a Silver Hook! A presumed second generation? There can't be too many of these in your records?

    1. This is quite possibly second generation because there are 8 records for the second half of July, 0 records for first half of August, and this is the 4th record for the second half of August. The other August records were on the 16th, 21st, and 23rd of the month. This is the 100th county record and was in the same area as one we found on the 11th June last year.
