A couple of actinic traps in mixed woodland last night gave us 31 moths of 8 species. The majority (20) were December moths, 3 Mottled umber, Winter moth, Northern winter moth, Yellow-line quaker, Red-green carpet, Chestnut, and November moth agg. (female).
33 November moths (aggs) to be precise.
Two traps at Ynis-hir last night, the actinic capturing more moths of more species than the mv light. They were in slightly different habitats, but I still have a theory that actinic is better at this time of year.
Mottled Umber, Feathered Thorn, Red-green Carpet, Chestnut, Green-brindled Crescent, December, one each of Grey Shoulder-knot and Satellite and a couple of micro species, Rusty-dot Pearls and Ypsolopha ustella.
December & Satellite
Not the best photos, sorry. Out Feathered Thorns were the usual colour Sarah.
