Carrying on from yesterday's post, 2015 was particularly good for new moth species, with 6 new Macros and 15 new Micros added to the garden list. Of these my favourites were the Barred Yellow which was found on the vanes of the trap on the morning of last day of June and the micro Dasycera oliviella which I plucked of the vanes the following evening. Further afield, success with a pheromone lure in Cornwall produced my first Emperor moths on the last day of April, and I was also pleased to come across my first Commophila aeneana near Boughton at Victory Wood on 28th May.
