The nights were cool and some days too so not too many leps and was also focusing on the bird migration and herps mainly too but still a few nice butterflies and moths. Here's a few pics with provisional identifications.
Swallowtail (above) and Scarce Swallowtail (below)
Early Long-horn, Adela cuprella (There was also reaumurella at the plot)
Grizzled Skipper (there are several Grizzled Skipper sp in this part of the world but I think this is just Grizzled?)
Queen of Spain Fritillary
Cream Spot Tiger Moth
Eastern Dappled White
Black Grass Moth , Pentophera morio . Lots of these day flying at Poda.
Oak Beauty variant ?
Silver Cloud- the most numerous moth in the LED trap and also very variable (see three images below)
Not sure what this is- could be Asteroscopus sphinx
Orache moth (above and below)
Many-lined. Other moths in the trap were Common Quaker, White-point, Common Carpet, Muslin, Hebrew Character, Small Quaker, Coronet, Cnephasia sp, Lunar Thorn, Oak Tree and Brindled Pug, Delicate, Oak Hook-tip and Lime Speck Pug so quite a familiar group of moths and not too many of them either. I would very much like to try out here in high summer with an MV or Actinic as the LED is great for travelling with but not very powerful
A couple to still id (above and below)
