[0123] Tischeria ekebladella

Catch Report - 22/05/12 - Bayfordbury University Grounds

An excellent 41 species of moth I managed to record in 2 hours of trapping from 10pm til 12am at the University grounds inbetween adjacent woodland.

The cream of the crop was a stunning Great Prominent, a first for me and one I was hoping to see at this site, having previously been recorded by Shaun Dowman at this site last year.

It literally flew in as I was packing up! a stroke of luck I would say!

Great to see more species on the wing, Broken-barred Carpet is always nice to get and a new micro was also added to my life list.

The next few nights look just as balmy, the trap was out last night in the garden and yielded a good haul, more updates on that soon.

Tonight I plan to camp out at a wood in Harlow with a few other guys to put some records on paper for a newly trapped woodland, so every record we get will be new.


The weather continues to rise to 26c+ and dropping no less than 12c at night ,with the hottest day of the expected today.
