Oak Processionary in Cookham

In last night's garden trap, this worn individual appeared. A male Oak Processionary, which I recognised from the picture posted by Greg Keith back on 2nd August.

There were 91 moths in the trap comprising 37 species, with only Vine's Rustic and Lesser Broad-bordered Yellow Underwing reaching double figures and very few micros. New moths for the year included Orange Swift, Clay Triple-lines, Maple Prominent, Toadflax Brocade, Centre-barred Sallow, Copper Underwing and Straw Underwing.
