30 March 2012 - Wittenham Clumps

A decent catch last night, despite clear skies and cold temperatures - 190 moths of 16 species and thankfully very few micros....

Best of the bunch were four White-marked. Only a couple of kms from where I was catching several last year (Long Wittenham Wood).
A few Frosted Greens were a welcome addition to the year's tally. 

This presumed melanic Brindled Pug (f. hirschkei) was interesting. 

Shoulderstripe may not be the rarest moth, but they are pretty smart when you take the time to really look at them!
