October 21st 2009

A quiet night with temperatures mild at around 11ÂșC. Only two moths though.

  • 1 Large Wainscot
  • 1 Chestnut *

October 23rd 2009

Heavy rain was forecast so we only put the trap out for a couple of hours in the evening.

  • 1 Large Wainscot
  • 1 Silver Y
  • 1 Large Yellow Underwing
  • 1 Rush Veneer *

The Rush Veneer was a new one for me and not in any of my books or the lists of moths from Ceredigion or Ynyslas. However, it is a well-known migrant, that can often be found in large numbers at coastal watch-points, and tends to occur in the adult stage between May and September. No doubt it has been seen here many times before.

New this week
