From the garden trap - 07/06/2008

National Moth Night result for my garden were actually not bad, especially considering I only ran the MV trap and didn't empty it until 10:30 after getting home from Pickworth Great Wood. No surprises or real highlights though. Total catch 65 of 39sp. First for year in garden: Silver-ground Carpet (Xanthorhoe montanata) 1 Small Rivulet (Perizoma alchemillata) 1 Poplar Hawk-moth (Laothoe populi) 1 Elephant Hawk-moth (Deilephila elpenor) 1 Middle-barred Minor (Oligia fasciuncula) 1 Mottled Rustic (Caradrina morpheus) 1 Fan-foot (Zanclognatha tarsipennalis) 1 Highest counts: Clouded Silver (Lomographa temerata) 6 Heart and Dart (Agrotis exclamationis) 5 Marbled Minor agg.
