Bringsty Common July 13-14th

Despite the nights being on the cool side, I decided to run 1 trap in the garden to see what arrives.  I've also been looking at the buddleia and ragwort at night to see what is nectaring on them.  Waved Black was the most notable.  The catch on the night of the 13th was better than last nights and it included 2 Angle-striped Sallow moths, Garden Tiger, Brown-line Bright-eye, Satin Beauty and Bordered Pug.  These last 3 are new to the garden so the total creeps ever closer to 700 species.  Indication that Summer is almost over increase with records of Canary-shouldered Thorn and Rosy Rustic.  Common Rustic (aggregates until to look more closely) increase in number every night.  Migrant interest is still low with singleton Nomophila nocutella each night. Excluding some that I have kept for closer analysis, I recorded 63 macros and 29 micros on the 13th and 61 species of macro and 23 micro last night.  The best news was only 8 Large Yellow Underwing last night!
