20th July 2012 ... Quality beats quantity

Down to 8 deg last night, which is very cold for the time of year, although last July dropped to 7 at this time.
Numbers were well down in the traps, but a couple of quality macros arrived before it got too cold............

1637 Oak Eggar Lasiocampa quercus (female)


I was pleased to see Oak Eggar in the trap.
This beauty has turned up for the past 3 years now but only singletons (so far).
However, the one below has only made one previous visit, so even better .......

735 Ruddy Carpet Catarhoe rubidata


A great start to what looks like being an ideal week for the traps at last....
Some Olympic mothing ahead !
