A mild but wet night on 24th - this Rusty-dot Pearl turned up in the trap.
The Muslin moth is not one to second brood, but these are strange times. John Walshe did record a second brooder in October last year and this November example is the second such record. Robin Hemming
Following on from Ian's record, making up just the 6th species for the night of November 12th, I had a moth stuck to an oak leaf at the bottom of the trap, the oak leaf cupping a small puddle of water which had trapped and trashed the attached moth. The wonders of dissection, identified it as a Streak, the first record for the garden here. Peter Hall
On 10th Nov I put my actinic out hope to catch some migrants on their way to Bodenham. No luck with that but did find something unfamiliar which turned out to be a Streak. Although the books class this as 'common', PH tells me that apart from at one site they're not so common in Herefordshire. If their foodplant here is Broom they could be local or more likely from the Forest of Dean.
Otherwise just the usual fayre but was surprised to get a December Moth in October (30th)
