More garden moths

The mild, cloudy night with a minimum temperature of 15C proved ideal for trapping in our garden producing probably our best ever for a single actinic Skinner. We had in excess of 200 macro moths of 62 species which included 54 Dark arches and 27 Large yellow underwing. We had our first Black arches, Copper underwing, Dun-bar, Ruby tiger, and Flounced rustic of the year. There were over 100 micros of 25 species.

  1. Wow. A magnificent result.

  2. Great! I had expected similar results but I think the bats have found my garden again, evidenced by a few wings across the grass.

  3. Have you drained the bubble bath?

  4. pleased to see your LYU's in numbers as I'm only getting ones and twos.

    1. That was the first time in double figures may have spoken too soon!!! ;-)
