Old Lady was the best a very mediocre lot last night, awaits usual puns.
This is a very unreliable feature, certainly wouldn't get accepted in Notts on that basis but yours does look like the Waring illustration too.
FWIW the underside of the underwing looked spot on too but I didn't get a pic of that. It also looked markedly different from all the ones with paler palps, much duskier, without the paler buff tones. I'll let the recorder do what he likes with it, but I'm having it! :t:
Didn't put the trap on until c9:45pm last night and it was already light rain, but think it cleared up later and went a bit chillier. Checked at 6:40am. Lowest variety of species in the whole of August - 6. No micros for the first time.
Dark Sword Grass 1
Large Yellow Underwing 33
Lesser Yellow Underwing 2
Flounced Rustic 17
Rosy Rustic 1
That puts me on 999 Large Yellow Underwings for August (more than all other moths combined!) I'm guessing will break through the 1000 barrier soon ... first night with no Flame Shoulders.
