Bringsty Common September 4th

As soon as I put the trap out last night, it started to rain and was a light drizzle for much of the night. The catch was surprisingly good considering and bodes well for the warm nights to come. In total 251 moths of 41 species, of which 225 were macros making up 28 of those species. Still good numbers of Brimstone (14) and second brood Light Emerald are increasing now (8). Topping the bill was Large Yellow Underwing of course with 67 individuals, followed by Square-spot Rustic with 41. It was nice to catch a Frosted Orange and Autumnal Rustic and also a Pale Eggar. Migrants were limited to a single Nomophila noctuella, 2 Silver Y and either a migrant or home bred Plutella xylostella. Craneflies abounded. I shall await my Beautiful Marbled tonight... Peter Hall
