• 1st October - Merveille du Jour and lots of micro's!

    Another great morning mothing at the reservoirs today! A dedicated bunch of us headed down in the not so great cornish weather - it had been drizzeling in the night but all the traps were nicely sheltered so we still got a good number of moths! Three traps were out and the moth I was personally quite excited about was the Merveille du Jour found sitting on the outside of the first trap we checked at Argal. I've always heard of this species and so was excited to see it on one of our own traps! The merveille du jour was the target species for the National Moth Night several years ago so its great that we can provide another bit of data for this species! We also had tonnes of tortrixes hanging around the outside of the traps. Tortrix are definitely the best micros to get as some of them are at least semi-possible to identify unlike many of the other micros! Autumn is definitely bringing in some nice new species, so if you're interested in helping us with the project remember come along to our next session! Full species list to follow soon!
