Scarce Umber, RW, 19th November

The two traps caught 27 December Moths, 3 Sprawlers, 3 Scarce Umbers, 3 Feathered Thorns, 1 Dark Arches and a few Winter Moths.

December Moths

Feathered Thorn

Dark Arches

A single Dark Arches in the trap. Books say that there is sometimes a partial second generation in Oct-Nov but the 19th Nov is the latest one for me. Actually got quite excited over a Dark Arches for once.

Bullfinch, RW

Last four photo's taken through kitchen window glass. Never any light when they visit the bush but a gorgeous bird to watch at close quarters whatever the circumstances.

Feathered Thorn and other moths, RW, 4th Nov


First time that i have seen this migrant in the garden and i nearly missed it on the outside of the trap.


29 were in the two traps last night, with 26 in the front garden trap.

November Moth

Probably so plain and silvery because of wear.

The Chestnut

Pearly Underwing

Like a cross between a Large Yellow Underwing and a Turnip Moth.
