Rhoose Point

A quick rifle through the trap this morning and 11 pale form Silver Y's, so I am pretty sure the weather front did bring saharan dust with it.  It was the right colour too, orangey yellow.  Also here's a snippet from Atropos "Night of 26 June: 1 Humming-bird Hawk-moth. Substantial falls of desert dust reported in Lizard village and Helston."

Nothing else of great interest, although a few potted up to look at later.

  1. You're quite right, Adam. No dust here yesterday, but today, the cars are plastered with it. Can't decide whether to trap tonight or leave it until the GMS trap tomorrow night. It takes a day or two for the migrants to trickle up here, from the coastal belt.
