NE Worcester Micros

Now its cooled down and time to reflect on the last 10 days of activity. A well-marked Mompha in the Warndon garden trap on the 15th looks good for divisella which has only been recorded from four VC37 sites, although from stats Feckenham Wylde Moor may have a colony.

 A last minute dash to Trench Wood on the 18th seemed very slow by 22:30 when Frosted Green seemed the best moth. Then in the last 30 minutes a fine Carpatolechia proximella arrived, followed by a very skittish Elachista apicipunctella.

Apicipunctella was new for the reserve. The only other micros were 8 Dyseriocrania subpurpurella.
