The last 3 nights have been a veritable moth-fest compared to the last couple of months, and numbers have risen night on night. More importantly, I've trapped a couple of corkers.
Firstly, Obscure Wainscot. This can wander into gardens but is largely restricted to a handful of wetland locations in the county.
On the back if that, the following evening I landed my first Alder moth. Not rare, but not something I see other folks recording that often either. A smart moth, and as the Macro garden list grows, each newbie is appreciated.
Finally last night, not a new moth, but only ever had a single individual previously ( 13/7/2013 ), a Ghost Moth.
The pain of all the early morning checking of an empty trap is beginning to fade.
