20th June 2014 ... Micro blitz

A much warmer night dropping to 11 deg just before dawn.
I decided to hang around the traps and pot up a batch of micro moths before they all disappeared by morning, and last nights conditions were ideal.
421 Argyresthia bonnetella turned out to be a site first although I'm sure I've had this before but forgot to add it to the records.
1079 Piniphila bifasciana is definitely new for site though and confirmed.
The macro moths disappointed, not by numbers, but nothing new for the year.
5 Swallow-tailed moths were dancing around the traps like handkerchiefs in the wind, quite a sight.
The grey Acronicta family was well represented with 4 Sycamore, 3 Poplar Grey, 2 Grey Dagger agg. and 1 Miller.
4 Privet Hawks, two Figure of Eighty, a Burnished Brass f. juncta and a second Poplar Kitten for the year which is quite remarkable considering the common Sallow Kitten has yet to be recorded this year.
A worn Orange Footman, Maiden's Blush, Broad-barred White, Buff Arches and Small Blood-vein added a splash of colour amongst the brown stuff.
