Scarce Bordered Straw

 


Strong southerlies tempted me to put the Dingestow Court MV out on 23/9, and I'm glad I did.  A Scarce Bordered Straw (4th Dingestow record and 1st here since 2006) was the highlight among 80+ individuals of 21 species.  Autumn residents included Pink-barred Sallow, Sallow, Red-line Quaker, Beaded Chestnut and Black Rustic. On the other side of the house, the porch light attracted this gorgeous Orange Sallow.  Ivy blossom held 4 moth species and 17 individuals of the uncommon beetle Oedemera femorata.
