My annual week of moth trapping in Port Eynon (away from my usual haunts in Buckinghamshire) has begun.
In spite of the rain at collection time and the attentions of a mother Robin, I managed 40 species with the Heart & Darts outnumbering the other 39 species combined.
New for my year list were Riband Wave, Fan Foot, Broad-barred White, Tinea semifulvella, Uncertain, Tachystola acroxantha, Bright-line Brown-eye, Spectacle, Green Pug and Mottled Beauty; most of which I fully expect to get back in VC24 over the summer!
On top of those I had this huge (26mm w/s) pug if anyone has any ideas...
...and I'm thinking this slightly tatty chap is L-Album Wainscot, which I absolutely will not get at home!
