I am new to this group having moved down from Skye to Oxfordshire last August. I regularly trapped moths there and ended up with a species count of around 170, rather derisory I suspect compared to Oxfordshire. I am now trapping in my garden in Hook Norton, once or twice per month, using a home made Skinner trap.
On the 27th I had a count of 16 moths (excluding one escapee), 9 species - Buff ermine, Pale tussock, Spectacle, Small phoenix, Muslin moth, Treble lines, Shuttle-shaped dart, Swallow prominent and what I think is a Tawny shears. Confirmation would be great!
