Country Park Moths

An overcast evening, so a bit of a gamble as to whether it would rain, but I put the moth trap out anyway, and it didn’t. It was cool and windy first thing, but a total of 17 species were in and around the trap.

No great surprises, commonest was the tortrix Celypha lacunana, others- all pictured- included the White Point, Brown Silver Lines and Nut-tree Tussock.

A belated postcript to my last entry for May 31 was the identification of Rustic Shoulder Knot , which is a new species for HCPNR, the fifth so far this season.
