Some nice records coming in from the country...meanwhere here in the smoke 48 moths overnight. Among which Figure of 80, Rustic Shoulder-knot, Lychnis and Peppered Moth the best. High scorers include Treble Lines (8), H & D (5), SSD (4) and LBAM (7). Many common moths appearing only as singles e.g. Willow Beauty, Flame Shoulder. Among the micros a Bee Moth, Epiblema cynosbatella, Rhyacionia pinivorana and two pomonella. Looking back through the last decade of catches over this same period, I appear to have lost the pine specialists which I put down to a neighbour having surgically removed his huge specimen of Pinus radiata, and with it, its entire ecosystem.
