Finally found a heat wave rarity, literally at the hour before midnight with this Pine Beauty in the moth trap, a first for Beddington Farmlands. As hoped for as the heat wave came to an end and cloud cover kept last night a bit milder there was an influx of moth activity, with a presumed dispersive amongst them.
Early Grey, Twin-spot Quaker, Hebrew Character and Clouded Drabs
A nice selection of classic early spring moths including Common Quakers and March moth. 21 species of moth so far this year and we are still in February!
