A Blog for moth recorders in Bucks, Berks and Oxon
Well done, you have added a new species for the reserve.Only the third Bucks record and the first since 1997.I suspect there must be more about, but not often seen.Do you have much raspberry on the reserve? If you have a nice patch could be worth trying for another new species - Raspberry Clearwing.
Yes, Wild Raspberry very extensive - in fact we collected seed for the Millenium Seed Bank last year. Do I need a pheremone lure to attract the clearwing?
You can look for the galls they cause, but a pheromone may be best.I'd be happy to come up with pheromones at a suitable time.
