The new Manley (3rd edition) arrived today and it is excellent with lots of additional species illustrated. Well worth getting. It contains all the species in the main ABH list. If you love mothing it's a must have.
I've found the 2nd ed invaluable and I'm sure this one will prove even more useful.
A good night in rural Surrey last night (comparative to recently);
my first Lime Hawk-moth
3 Treble Lines
2 Scorched Wing
.....and singles of
3 other species which should be easy enough but struggling to ID...will try again later.
At last.........two decentish nights.
Yesterday I had only my third, and earliest-ever, Orange Footman in a catch of 8 moths/7 species.
The today 16 moths/11 species included my second-ever Seraphim, a least Black Arches and a Spruce Carpet. Also a Flame Shoulder, a species I never caught at all last year.
Year list up to 30.
Decent night last night, Muslin Moth was a tick, Alder Kitten, Spectacle (2 of), Chinese Character & Treble Lines were NFY. Also 2 Garden Carpets, Common Marbled Carpet, Green Carpet, 3 Peppered Moths, Engrailed, Swallow Prominent, Heart & Dart, 2 Shuttle-shaped Darts & Flame Shoulder.
