With the prospects of a mild night on the 12th October, this presented an ideal opportunity to put the moth trap on.

With lots of migrant moths being discovered in Southern England, the South West & Isles of Scilly, I chanced a good moth. You can imagine my excitement when I checked the trap at 6:30am on the 13th and discovered an Udea ferrugalis or Rusty Dot Pearl. This was indeed a rare migrant for my county of Derbyshire. The last time I trapped one was a number of years ago when there was another good passage of migrant moths. Well pleased…

The full trap was – Udea ferrugalis 1 /  Large Yellow Underwing 2 / Blair’s Shoulder Knot 1/ Shuttle-shaped Dart 2/ Yellow-lined Quaker 1/ Feathered Thorn 1/ Pale Mottled Willow 1/ Chestnut 1/ Dark Chestnut 1/ November Moth 1/ Juniper Carpet 5/ Red-lined Quaker 1/ Lesser Yellow Underwing 1
