From the Clifftop

This current spell of torrid weather finally delivered yesterday, with this rare migrant, Shining Marbled, in my Fairlight trap. This small but attractive moth has an easterly distribution extending to Japan, it was first recorded in Britain 2006, and in Sussex in 2012 and 2015 at least . Another one was trapped at Sandwich Bay during the same night. Otherwise, the main sign of immigration was a jump in the numbers of Large Yellow Underwings to 41, blundering about in the trap . Yesterday my car recorded 36C along the coast from dungeness, with a brief high of 37 at Jury's Gap-blisteringly hot. 

Loads of moths in the trap again this morning despite me having to get up and cover it during a thunderstorm at 0350, year list now improving !
