Poplar Hawk, Scalloped Hazel, White Ermine and Scoparia ambigualis new for the year. Also Brown Rustic, Brown Silver-line, Pale-shouldered Brocade and Edinburgh Pug.
I’m getting distinctly less than usual!...just a Brimstone at dinner last night + 2 pugs and a geom sp that “got away.” at 4.30 am! I had c30 one morning in the early Spring. 😮Not the best night in either numbers or species, the single highlight was my third record (17 years traping) of Ingrailed Clay, at least I think that's what it is, attached.
Pale Tussock seems to be having a good year here, anyone else getting anymore than usual?
I had my first in my garden in Leeds just over a week ago - verified by the county recorder.Interesting selection this morning, 38/19. NFY were Figure of Eighty, White Ermine, Pyrausta aurata and Clepsis consimilana.
A little unsure about what looks like the tiny micro Glyphipterix fuscoviridella - it is described as a calcareous grassland species so my urban garden seems a bit off for it. Does anyone else get it in gardens?
Edit - I get the impression the county recorder et al are rather more than dubious about my tiny micro. Only a few county records and all from typical grassland habitat.
Soft lad...................Moth of the day White-spotted Pug tick - the only NFY today out of 49/15 spp.
