Feckenham Wylde Moor, Mon 31st July

I joined Steve Whitehouse and Oliver Wadsworth at Feckenham Wylde Moor last Monday for a last chance to trap before the meadows are cut and the cattle moved in.
Conditions were not great, cool with a slight breeze and intermittent light rain. My 3 traps recorded 63 species with another haul of Agriphila straminella estimated at 250 individuals and a handful of wetland moths such as Small Rufous, Silky Wainscot, Bulrush Wainscot and Gold Spot. Just two micros were photographed below.
