Uskmouth Reedbeds 23rd September


I ran the LED trap in the reedbeds and caught just 12 moths, but over half were my target species - Large Wainscot. I was very surprised to catch a Cypress Pug though! Silky Wainscot was also a surprise for this time of year, but they did emerge late because of the cold spring. The complete list was:

Large Wainscot 7
Bulrush wainscot 1
Silky Wainscot 1
Rosy Rustic 1
Cypress Pug 1
Small Square Spot 1


One of 7 Large Wainscots
