Trap results 26/9/09

Another very still night, cloudless and quite chilly.

My 2nd Black Rustic (pic left) and another Large Ranunculus (pic right) sitting on the brick wall near the trap and difficult to spot against the background despite its size.
Fascinating creatures, and in a lot of cases difficult to identify. My Field Guide to the Moths of Great Bitain and Ireland is starting to look well worn after just 2 months of use !
Last nights haul :-
3 x Willow Beaty
2 x Shuttle-shaped Dart
2 x Large Yellow Underwing
1 x Lesser Yellow Underwing
1 x Pale Mottled Willow
1 x Square-spot Rustic
1 x Black Rustic
