Moth Traps May 25th and 27th 2022

Moth traps on the 25th and 27th produced a combined nine new species for the reserve.

Grey Scalloped Bar, Clouded-bordered Brindle, Puss Moth, Middle-barred Minor, Schoenobius gigantella, Obscure Wainscot, Brown Silver-line, Mottled Pug and Eyed Hawk-moth. In four out of the last six years Grey Scalloped Bar has not been recorded by anyone anywhere in Hampshire.

And new moths for me included Dog’s Tooth, Common Swift, Cydia ulicetana, Silky Wainscot and Shears.
