With a return to some warm evenings earlier in the week and some changeable conditions it's proven to be pretty interesting on the moth front. A few highlights pictured below including some first records for Beddington Farmlands. Had a peak of 45 species on one night.
Garden Tiger- two of these together one evening. Also up to 7 Jersey Tigers
Poplar Hawkmoth- not a common moth locally
Red Underwing- the first for year
Small Ranunculus (with Vine's Rustic) - becoming more regular here. One of the few times we've had two together.
Canary Shouldered Thorn- a good year for these
Cypress Pug- the first for year
I believe this is Turnip Moth, although Heart and Club and Garden Dart can be similar
Cydia fagiglandana- if correct id a first for the farmlands
Lathronnympha strigana- a first for the farmlands
Nephopterix angustella- another first for the farmlands
