Second half of November round-up

Significant reduction in numbers, a few blanks and abandonments due to weather forecast was as expected of the season but still the odd moth to report.


Winter Moth on the wall - first for year 21st Nov

Scarce Umber - second record for garden 15th Nov after first on 11th Nov

Dark Arches - late record of 17th Nov with others in VC30 on the same night. This individual looks very tidy presumably freshly emerged.

Only other species trapped during the second half of November were Silver Y (three) and Feathered Thorn
