Newport Wetlands 10th October

18 moths of 12 species to MV at Redhouse Barns. 4 species were FFY at this site: Large Wainscot, Black Rustic, Figure of Eight and Mottled Umber. The latter 2 weren't in the trap, but on the building's back wall, about 4m from the trap. I always check the wall for moths and always find some, but I only just noticed the Figure of Eight.

  1. I have been fascinated by moths and butterflies since I was a little boy so I love your blog! I am from Cardiff originally but now based in Tenerife and am very glad to see all the species you have found in your area!
