Bringsty Common September 4th

As it was going to be mild and humid I ran 2 mv traps in the garden last night to see what was about.  38 species of macro-moth and 15 micro-moth.  I have to say, nothing to get excited about.  2 Dark Sword-grass a Silver Y and 1 Plutella xylostella made up the migrants.  Lots of Thorns - Dusky, Canary-shouldered, Early, September and August all made an appearance.  A rather late Common Lutestring.  1 Pale Eggar.  Topping the bill was Large Yellow underwing (68) followed by Square-spot Rustic (65).  For micros Celypha lacunana was commonest with 14.  Most of my pots were "Ophion ichneumons" for Gavin Broad at the NHM, rather than moths.  Peter Hall
