Out and About

Apart from the usual running the trap in the garden, I also went with a friend over to Bowdown Woods, near Thatcham, to join a session run by Berkshire BBOWT. We joined in a lot of their sessions last year, seeing a lot of excellent moths, but this was the first time this year.

The traps were left overnight, but as we had to leave around midnight, I only saw 85 moths of 52 species, so anything that came in later, well, we missed!

The new ones for my year list were:

Variegated Golden Tortrix
Agriphila straminella
Ephestia parasitella
Platyptilia pallidactyla
Blotched Emerald
Common Emerald
Purple Clay
Double Square-spot
Green Arches
Poplar Grey
Small Angle Shades
Dark Arches

My garden trapping has been fairly quiet this week, which is why I've not posted, but new for the garden list this year were:

Argyresthia curvella (lifer)

Pandemis cinnamomeana
Lozotaenia forsterana  
Marbled Orchard Tortrix
Crambus pascuella
Garden Pebble
Mottled Beauty
Lesser Swallow Prominent
Large Yellow Underwing
Angle Shades

Angle Shades
