The other moths caught on Saturday night, and new to the parish, were
Clouded Silver, Silver-ground Carpet, Thistle Ermine, Brown China-mark,
White-shouldered House-moth and this lovely Scorched Wing.
All of these are
quite common but have pushed the parish moth list up to around 200 species. Hopefully with plans for more regular trapping that total can continue to grow. I
have now included the list as one of the blog pages.
Back in our garden this very washed out Cockchafer was the
only one I’ve seen so far this year.
