Some cool moths from Wokefield Common

Although it was a bit chilly last night, Marc Botham and I spent a couple of hours mothing at Wokefield Common, now a BBOWT reserve. We were rewarded with 21 moths of six species: Yellow-horned (the most numerous with 12 individuals), Chestnut, Common Quaker, March Moth, Oak Beauty and Diurnea fagella.

Woodcock, toad and three-spined sticklebacks were bonuses (not in the moth traps though).

  1. Nice to see you got some moths on such a cool, clear night Martin! As I'm now unable to get out with my mobile trap anymore I thought I'd set my garden trap, but not a single moth by morning.
