Moth Report 2012

Moth Report 2012

(compiled by Michael Williams; photographs by Rose Williams)

Due to the awful weather only two moth trapping sessions were achieved this year on 21st July and 8th September, both using a Robinson type moth trap.

Each session was run from dusk until approximately midnight, and the trap stored overnight until the following morning when the contents were examined and recorded.

All other dates refer to moths either as day flyers or disturbed during the day. The Minor sp. noted below is recorded as such as to be certain of which particular species it actually is would involve dissection and examination under a microscope. Photographic records have been taken of most of the species listed below. A total of 50 species were recorded in 2012.

There are further photographs in the Gallery.
