Slightly disappointing last week...

There had been a planned trapping session on a local heathland - yes, there is some in South Bucks - on Saturday night, but after a week of warm and dry, the weather decided to produce all it's saved up rain and wind, so the session was called off.

However, we had still managed to visit the heathland in the day, and the micro moth list comprised Cydia ulicetana, Glyphipterix thrasonella, Ancylis uncella, Bactra lancealana and Phylloporia bistrigella with Common Heath, Light Brocade, Brown Silver-line and Common Wave fulfilling the macro list.

The weekly 6w woodland heath trap was actually run twice this week, having missed out the previous week. The new-for-year species were Eulia ministrana, Pebble Hook-tip, Tawny-barred Angle, Muslin Moth and Green Silver-lines. Also on the site were newly-emerged examples of Red-necked Footman and Cinnabar.

The garden trap was poorly populated, with Mompha subbistrigella and Maiden's Blush being the only two new ones.
