Seeing Red

Returning from holidays, I ran the moth trap last night for the first time in August here on Bringsty Common.  Pale Eggar (2), Black Rustic, Flounced Rustic, Centre-barred Sallow (7) and the usual late Summer/early Autumn fayre with Large Yellow Underwing topping the bill with 53 individuals followed by Square-spot Rustic on 34.  Migrants represented by a single Udea ferrugalis. Not too bad for a coolish night.  31 macros and 11 micros.  Hearing about all the Clifden Nonpareils turning up in the UTB region, it reminded me to look around the house walls this morning for Red Underwing and there was one initially disturbed by my movement, then settling again against the brick work.  Now is the time to check your house walls in the morning.  Peter Hall
