Autumn Moths

Even with all the excitement last week with the rare Long-tailed Blue butterflies I still managed to get the moth trap out a few times. For most of the week the weather was favourable with light winds, although the overnight temperatures were a little lower than they had been.
Despite this I still caught a few new species and also some nice individuals.
The Black Rustic.
Dark Sword-grass

and the Sallow

All these moths are quite common but were all very fresh individuals. Now its waiting for the wind to die down before the next attempt.
