Shears and Brown rustics

The sun was just creeping over the dunes as we arrived to check the traps. The Small heaths were still sleeping clinging to low vegetation. We had 14 moth species including good numbers of Cinnabar, Green carpet, Brown rustic, Shears, and Purple bar. Also singles of Scalloped hazel, Brimstone, Broom moth, and Heart and dart (our first this year, no doubt quite a few to come). Two micros: Elachista argentella (several) Crambus pratella.
