Winchelsea Moths

A 20w blacklight Robinson moth trap was used last night in Winchelsea and numbers were down on the previous weeks with only 28 species. But that included 4 Jersey tigers ( 1st photo - previously only ever had 1 at a time), an Oak eggar (2nd photo - also 1st time at this site) and a canary-shouldered thorn (3rd photo - 1st time at this site). The profusion of dark arches that we have had of the previous weeks has disappeared.
