Chepstow- 7th October
Temperature Low: 13.5c, 56f.
Partly cloudy at first then overcast with patchy spots of drizzle, mild.
Ran the trap in the hope that a few extra moths may be around given the milder conditions and it proved to be a good call as many species turned up with a few 'new' additions to the site.
41 moths of 17 species were recorded with the break down of the catch listed below:
Light Brown Apple Moth (9) Blair's Shoulder-knot,
Common Marbled Carpet (8) Narrow-winged Grey (2)
Lesser Yellow Underwing (2) Silver Y, Light Emerald (2)
Large Yellow Underwing (5)
Vestal, Willow Beauty, Red-green Carpet (2)
Angle Shades, Double-striped Tabby (2)
Beautiful Hook-tip, Straw Dot and Cypress Carpet
Plus an interesting unknown micro?
New for site were Vestal, Cypress Carpet, Straw Dot and Cypress Carpet.
The micro does not appear in any of my books but is new.
Double-striped Tabby (Hypsopygia glaucinalis)
Beautiful Hook-tip (Laspeyria flexula)
Cypress Carpet (Thera cupressata)
