Unable to resist the warm temperatures despite this being the fourth night in a row trapping away from home, another survey visit to our own butterfly reserve at Holtspur Bottom near Beaconsfield, Bucks last night proved very productive. Two MV traps run for nearly four hours caught 104 species, of which 40 were micros. Unsurprising when one considers how much Yellow Rattle there is in the meadows, Grass Rivulet (48) was the most abundant moth in the traps. The three species illustrated below were the pick of the bunch, any one of which I would be more than pleased to see in my garden (some hope!).
