Forward to 11 July 2004 moth page, back to 20 June 2004 moth page, to general moths page.
Not a very warm night, but warm enough and the rain held off. Hence a good crop of somewhere around 50 moths in the trap. The bulk this time were Heart & Dart, Bright-line Brown-eye, Arches Agg (Dark or Light - difficult to tell) and Common Quakers. There were also a few Dot Moths, Double Square-spots, The Flame and Common Footman plus a single Small Emerald and Pinion-streaked Snout. The Scoparia Pyrallela were around again, and so we've included a rather better picture of one below.
The new and interesting ones are pictured below, most spectacular of which is the Buff Arches with it's zig-zaggy wing pattern. Thanks to the good people on the bird forum moth ID list for identifying the Yellow Shell and the Short-cloaked Moth, both of which I think are really apt descriptive names. The Varied Coronet looks awfully like a bird poo.
