Overnight min. temp. 7.3 deg. .. Rain most of night, heavy at times.
No traps last night, far too wet until I sort out some rain covers, but I switched on a blacklight in the patio door window.
A new micro appeared out of the rain which has yet to be identified. Looks like a Monopis species at just 5mm in length.
Photos are a bit rubbish, my lumix macro mode struggles with tiny micros !
A good shout for this micro could be 607 Elachista canapennella Male
after Captain Trappings suggestion of an Elachista species.
Flight time is right, size is good ( 8/10 mm wingspan )
This one would be a plain male if it is E. canapennella as the female is well marked.
Either way our recorder will have the final say.
Gen det confirmed as 607 Elachista canapennella...David Manning, county micro recorder.
