Trench Wood Sunday 21st

Another mild weather window and the 15w Actinic once again in situ in a sheltered part of the wood for 5 hours yesterday. Fine drizzle at end but a dozen species included my earliest Yellow Horned there, Small Quaker, The Engrailed, 4 March Moth, Satellite, 2 Small Brindled Beauty, Pale Brindled Beauty, Dotted Chestnut, 3 Chestnut and a male Diurnea fagella. Back home in the garden an Agonopterix alstromeriana, 2 Ypsolopha ustella  and 6 Common Quaker all before midnight.
Trench Wood: The Engrailed

Trench Wood: Yellow Horned


  1. It's a good job somebody is making the effort to get out there and record some early moths. Well done Steve.

  2. Had some help counting/packing up as well so it was nice sharing some of these, as he saw and photographed 4 new species in 20 mins...
