Near Trellech

8th May
A very good evening near darkest Trellech.
75 moths of 24 species in just a few hours or so!

Amongst the haul was Square Spot, Frosted Green, Barred Umber, Least Black Arches, Pale Feathered Bright (Incurvaria pectinea) and a now the correctly named Grey Birch.

Pictures from top to bottom are:
Barred Umber, Least Black Arches, Pale Feathered Bright and Grey Birch.

  1. Not Small engrailed Nick. It's a Grey birch.

  2. Thank you Paul I thought something was not right.
    I had never seen either Small Engrailed or Grey Birch previous to this encounter, but I've just been going through my moth and butterfly pictures this Sunday afternoon (15th) and I was coming to the same conclusion the markings are not right.
    Thanks for pointing it out and putting my mind at rest.
