From the garden trap - 13/07/2008

Another very good night, made all the better with the sixth garden first micro so far this year. I always like to try and get a shot of garden firsts, but like many moths before this one unfortunately made off in the kitchen before I got a shot - never to be seen again. Total catch 216 of 74sp. (125W MV 107 of 56sp., 80W actinic 109 of 53sp.) First for garden: Carpatolechia alburnella 1 First for year in garden: Bird-cherry Ermine (Yponomeuta evonymella) 2 Brachmia blandella 1 Udea lutealis 1 Mother of Pearl (Pleuroptya ruralis) 1 Trachycera advenella 1 Yellow-tail (Euproctis similis) 1 Dun-bar (Cosmia trapezina) 1 Common Rustic agg. (Mesapamea secalis agg.) 3 Highest counts: Dark Arches (Apamea monoglypha) 17 Large Yellow Underwing (Noctua pronuba) 16 Bramble Shoot Moth (Epiblema uddmanniana) 10
