The autumn species seem to be slow appearing here this year. A Black Rustic on the 7th (with another last night) and a Red-green Carpet on the 9th are all I've had apart from Centre-barred Sallow which has been around since 22nd August and a single Orange Sallow on 26th August. I've usually seen Deep-brown Dart, Lunar Underwing and Sallow by now but it is noticeable that in my local area there is still no ivy blossom available yet and the moths are generally 'in sync' with its appearance. Fairly typical of the last week or so, 17 species appeared at the actinic here last night: Acleris variegana (1), Celypha lacunana (2), Epinotia nisella (1), Eudonia angustea (2), Lesser Treble-bar (1), Brimstone Moth (3), Large Yellow Underwing (12), Lesser Yellow Underwing (1), Broad-bordered Yellow Underwing (1), Setaceous Hebrew Character (2), Square-spot Rustic (1), Feathered Gothic (1), Common Wainscot (5), Black Rustic (1), Centre-barred Sallow (3), Flounced Rustic (1) & Snout (3). Unless it has a very late flurry of activity, Square-spot Rustic looks set to put in its worst performance ever here. Just over 100 have been recorded so far with the highest nightly count being a mere 13 individuals.
