Red-green Carpet is a common visitor along with Common Marbled, Spruce and Garden Carpet.
An Autumn Green Carpet was caught just 5 miles away from my garden, a moth thought to be extinct in the Bedfordshire VC30 county having not been seen since 1975.
Another uncommon Carpet moth in my area is the Juniper Carpet which is benefiting from the many juniper cultivars growing in gardens and one that I am keeping an eye out for.
I have recorded 2 or 3 in the past 6 years.
|Red-green Carpet - Chloroclysta siterata|
|Spruce Carpet - Thera britannica|
|Garden Carpet - Xanthorhoe fluctuata|
A Feathered Thorn was added to the year list ....
|Feathered Thorn - Colotois pennaria|
My late record has been topped by Matt Burgess who caught one a few days later.
This 2nd generation is noticeably smaller than the July/Aug batch.
