Lanlay Meadows - Friday night

Mike Thornton and I had a good session at Lanlay Meadows, Peterston-super-Ely on Friday night. The sky cleared at dusk and the temperature dropped - a phenomenon which has happened pretty much every time I've trapped this site this year, but we still recorded a respectable 65 species (one MV and two 6W actinics, in just under 3 hours).

Highlights included a range of marsh and woodland species: Round-winged Muslin, Bulrush Wainscot, Bordered Beauty, Blue-bordered Carpet, Magpie Moth, Small Rufous, Black Arches, Gold Spot, Mompha locupletella (new ST07), Mompha propinquella and Evergestis pallidata.

Bulrush Wainscot

33 species were new for the site, taking the site list to 161 species (this without any trapping between the end of May and early August).
