• Moth trapping begins!!

    Today we began our moth monitoring at the reservoirs! After a huge team effort in collecting enough egg boxes the past few months, and lots of unpacking/charging of all our awesome new equipment, we set the traps on saturday to see what we could find. As it was our first time using the traps we decided to begin using just 3 of the 5 traps to check everything was running smoothly, with 2 at College and 1 at Argal. We had a total of 11 species of moth, cadisflys + lots of mossys! The species that we think we had are:

    College Reservoir

    Angle shades

    Hebrew Character

    Muslin moth

    Nut tree tussock

    Caddis fly

    Dotted border

    Common Quaker

    Pug unidentified!

    Yellow barred brindle

    Water Carpet

    Small phonix

    Pug unidentified

    Argal Reservoir

    One lonely common quaker!

    We'll be heading out again next sunday so get in touch if you would like to come along and help! Any level of ID welcome!
