Pale Pinion and Scarce Umber

Just as I thought the season had tailed off, a couple of new moths in the trap last night. A Pale Pinion and a rather bruised Scarce Umber. Tony tells me that I recorded the Scarce Umber in 1989 and 1991 but the Pale Pinion is new to the site. I am trapping later than I did years ago so am in new territory. These spur me on to continue. It's new territory for the site as well so who knows what might turn up?


  1. We have had only 1 Pale pinion and no Scarce umber so far this Autumn, maybe they are waiting for the colder weather.

  2. Well done, David. I had my first empty trap of the year which was a bit disappointing but I'm hoping for something interesting next time.
