Lighthouse Park

Ran the MV Sat 17th at home slightly less wind than Friday night. Still NNE cloudy & 10°. 26 moths of 13 macro & 1 micro species dropped in. Barred Sallow was NFY & Figure of Eight was a lifer for me :-

LYU x 5
Barred Sallow x1
Large Wainscot x 4
Common Marbled Carpet x 1
Figure of Eight x 2
Blair's Shoulder-knot x 2
Lesser YU x 1
Pink Barred Sallow x 1
Beaded Chestnut x 2
Setaceous Hebrew Character x 3
Sallow x 2
Common Wainscot x 1
Black Rustic x 1
Emmelina monodactyla x 1

All common moths i know but it beats an empty trap & it will soon be time for a few of those.

  1. Melvin, I would not beat yourself up about having 'common moths'.
    Some of your catch I've yet to see i.e. Large Wainscot, Sallow and Beaded Chesnut.
    I know certain habitats yield certain moths, so you may see things many of us don't and vice versa.
    Keep you chin up mate! all the best, Nick
