Northern Rustic and friends at Wallog

We ran 3 Heath traps at Wallog last night and recorded 52 macro and 17 micro species. The star for me was a Northern Rustic (in fact there were 3 of them). A moth I have never caught before (although Ina used to get them occasionally in her garden in Lancashire). There are 28 county records in total with 14 of those since 2000. It was not a new species for Wallog as Mike Bailey recorded one there in 2002. Also in the catch were: Bordered White, Miller, Lime-speck Pug, Marbled Coronet, Spectacle, Ingrailed Clay, Brussels Lace, Purple Bar, Clay Triple-lines, Small Seraphim, and Lead Belle.
