Parc Slip

I put the trap out last night despite forecast heavy rain. It wasn't raining when i got to the trap this morning though and i had a decent catch so glad i made the effort: 176 moths of 55 species with only 23 LYU which was a bonus...
Highlights were a chocolate-tip, dark spectacle (2nd ever here), firsts for the year of sallow kitten, chinese character, iron prominent, canary-shouldered thorn and square-spot rustic.
As far as micros go i had my first ever Ypsolopha dentella, my second ever Ypsolopha sequella and firsts for the year of Monopis weaverella and Agriphila latistria.
