Moth Night

Another moth night the trap was up and running again after an unexpected breakdown for a couple of week, what had happened I don’t know. The trap was stripped cleaned, fuse checked and was ok, put back together battery charged and was found to be okay!!!! So we had a new moon min temp was 9°c it was cloudy with a 4mph Northerly wind and a things were going right for a chance I was expecting a good number of moths…..two

  • (2107) Large Yellow Underwing (1) new for the year
  • (2170) Varied Coronet (1) New Species and a grade 3 moth for VC63 [info can be found here at Yorkshire Moths Site (PRESS)

So the numbers were rubbish but the Varied Coronet more than made up for it
