Add the fact the sun has been virtually missing for three days and you will see that lighting when photographing these moths has been difficult.
The first of the new ones is what one would expect especially as the trap is next to a plum tree and that is the strongly coloured female of the Large Fruit-tree Tortrix. This moth can be a pest on Apple trees so I better be careful how I praise this one. The next is a very active Gold Triangle,possibly one of the easiest micros to identify. Alas this one looks like its seen better days, well haven’t we all!!!
The next moth has very little to identify it other than it is black with a orangey line in the stigmata and is the Black Rustic still a rather nice moth.
Finally my favourite of the day,or should that be night is the Brindled Green a stunner of a moth and one of only a few green ones, I love it!!!
Apologies for the bad shots.
The catch last night included Brindled Green 2,Black Rustic 1,September Thorn 2, Large Yellow Underwing 4, Pine Carpet 3, Common Marbled Carpet 1,Lunar Underwing 5, Snout 1, & Turnip Moth 1.
