A very belated report of Monday's moth trapping session.
Scalloped Oak was new for the year - a beautiful moth (please see photo below) and there were large numbers of Heart and Dart again.
Still having problems with my Uncertains and Rustics!
I am still not sure of the id of this moth and its quite worn which complicates matters even further! My best guess is Ingrailed Clay but I think it may have to remain as one of those mystery and unidentified noctuids
