Halesowen 20th April

Cochylis atricapitana
The garden trap went out last night for the first time in 10 days and although there were comparatively few moths I was rewarded with a pristine Cochylis atricapitana to photograph.

Oak-tree Pugs had largely replaced Brindled and there was one Golden-rod Pug, NFY. A couple of very tired looking overwintering species in the form of Acleris schalleriana and Acleris hastiana were still hanging on.

P.S. Just dissected a very battered Noctuid from last night which is White-marked, a first for the garden!
