18th Aug 2013 ... Sallow, end of summer ?

Centre-barred Sallow, a nice splash of colour amongst the fading brown stuff.
I usually associate this moth with summers end, but at least we had one this year and it looks like continuing a while longer.
A noticeable absence this year has been Large Yellow Underwing, not sure if this is a national trend but there is a marked downfall in numbers this season.
2269 ... Centre-barred Sallow
Only the third Common Wainscot so far this year .....
2199 ... Common Wainscot
First Comma of the year for the garden ...


  1. Hi Trent.
    Hardly any LYU's anywhere this year! As for Wainscots, these have been rare aswell, I think I have only seen 1 or 2 Common and 5 or 6 Smoky all year! Yes this week looks good, particularly towards the weekend. I had a good catch last night with some new ones.

  2. Yes, I noticed that Tony down in Kent is well down on LYU too, so it looks as though it is a national trend.
