We returned to check the moth traps early on Thursday morning. There were several interesting finds including several wetland specialists. Some of the highlights included:- Jersey Tiger, Southern Wainscot, Small Rufous, Twin-spotted Wainscot, Beautiful China Mark, Donacaula forficella, Yellow Belle, Cydia amplana and Crimson Underwing sp (which flew before we could identify it to species).
