Bringsty Common

I dusted down the moth trap last night after returning from the Recorders Day in Birmingham. 5 species including my first Spring Usher for the garden (probably because I hardly ever get around to putting the trap out at this time of year).  That's species number 713. Others were Pale Brinded Beauty (2),  Chestnut (3), Dark Chestnut (1) and an Acleris notana/ferrugana.  Quite a few Agonopterix heracliana at the house windows as well.   Peter Hall

Oak Beauty

This Oak Beauty came to the Robinson trap last night at Norchard, which must be quite an early date? Despite the wind, there was also a Common Quaker, Chestnut, and five Pale Brindled Beauty's.

2018 Cover Page photo

I'm looking for a new cover page photo, now we have started a new year.  Either micro or macro, but preferably a stunning image.  Credit will be included on the cover page.  Billy, you've been sending in lots of good images to the Moth Dissection website or what about you Oliver?  Please mail to If I get more than one to use,  I can always change part way through the year.  Peter Hall
