|Plumed Prominent, 14th November|
December Moth was again very active (51 counted), while other species recorded on this occasion were Caloptilia semifascia, Ypsolopha parenthesella, Blastobasis lacticolella, Acleris sparsana, Acleris ferrugana/notana, Acleris variegana, Common Marbled Carpet, Red-green Carpet, Spruce Carpet, November Moth sp, Feathered Thorn, Chestnut, Brick, Yellow-line Quaker, Barred Sallow & Oak Nycteoline.
By the time I got back home to Westcott the 'conservatory actinic' had brought in a fleet of Feathered Thorns to the windows (11 in all). In addition to my first garden December Moth and Scarce Umber of the season, there were also Caloptilia stigmatella, November Moth sp, Dark Sword-grass & Red-line Quaker.
