Mothing at St Margaret's
I try and identify all the Macro Moths, with the micros I am not at all systematic, I do more than I used to with the help of the new book, but there are some that do get through.

Species List for 9/10/2013
The barometer dropped and so did the temperature but the wind increase. With temperatures dropping to 7 deg C and the wind at 20mph with gusts up to 35mph unsurprisingly the number of moths fell drastically. There were some goodies and all for some reason were in immaculate nick. Not one micro moth, and only 56 macro moths of 14 species. The next few days do not appear to be more encouraging.
Always a smart moth, this Rosy Rustic is in very good condition.
Another Delicate, I love the subtle pattern, barely visible but quite definitely there.
