COAM Session

Bit of a session at the Chiltern Open Air Museum last night with Messrs. King and Payne.

5 lights of various types spread across the site in woodland, chalk grassland and - er - concrete - caught at least - I say at least as there are probably 50 more individuals in pots - 124 species.

As far as my personal list goes, new for the year were - Argyresthia brockeella, Agapeta zoegana, Pandemis cinnamomeana, Archips xylosteana, Aleimma loeflingiana, Gypsonoma dealbana, Lathronympha strigana, Anania coronata, Orthopygia glaucinalis, Stenoptilia pterodactyla, Peach Blossom, Buff Arches, Mocha, Clay Triple-lines, Small Fan-footed Wave, Barred Yellow, Fern, Pretty Chalk Carpet, Foxglove Pug, Lilac Beauty, Brindled White-spot, Maple Prominent, Pale Prominent, Short Cloaked Moth, Flame, Double Square-spot, Grey Arches, Broad-barred White, Clay, Smoky Wainscot, Miller, Knot Grass, Bird's Wing and Burnished Brass.

Moth of the night was probably the Lilac Beauty:

There was also Lesser Stag Beetle, Glow-worm and some Long-eared bats (no expert, so not sure of the exact species).
