Nothing new in the garden for a few days despite the ideal conditions.
Plenty of brown moths that are starting to look very tired now.
The last 3 nights have seen literally thousands of Water Veneer, Acentria ephemerella, in the traps and hundreds of Horse Chestnut Leaf-miners, Cameraria ohridella.
The wine bet has almost reached "wave the white flag" levels as Capt. Trappings races away with a 15 macro species advantage.
One or two nice moths were recorded that were not so brown, but nothing to speed up the ticker.
Here's a few........
Toadflax Brocade, Calophasia lunula .. a Dells regular and very local.
Beautiful Plume, Amblyptilia acanthadactyla
Iron Prominent, Notodonta dromedarius. Unusually well marked
Poplar Hawk-moth, Laothoe populi. 21/08/12 .. A latecomer
Lesser Swallow Prominent, Pheosia gnoma
Nutmeg, Discestra trifolii
