Interesting Autumn trapping

I have managed to trap the last two nights and have had some nice, New for me, moths - Chestnut, Lunar Underwing, and  Sallow, plus Spruce Carpets, Black Rustics and Silver Ys among others.
also this stunning Red-green Carpet which posed nicely on a hazel leaf.


  1. A nice record and photo Jane. Steve Clarke wisely predicted that you might have this species at Rhandirmwyn.

  2. And keep a sharp eye out for its cousin, the much less common Autumn Green Carpet, which can also be found now. Very nice photo, Jane.

  3. Thanks. I did have a happy few minutes when I thought it was an Aurumn Green!
