22/23 August 2014

Moths caught on the night of the 22nd and 23rd August 2014
totalled 16 of 5 different species in my Back Garden in Howdon
They were as follows:
1913 Ennomos alniaria Canary-shouldered Thorn 1
2107 Noctua pronuba Large Yellow Underwing 11
2109 Noctua comes Lesser Yellow Underwing 2
2134 Xestia xanthographa Square-spot Rustic 1
2154 Mamestra brassicae Cabbage Moth 1

Here are pictures of a few of them although the Canary-shouldered Thorn was
a new species for the garden and so photogenic that I have put in 2 photos

Remember, I am not infallible (as most of you probably know) so if I have
made an identification error please let me know, I don't mind admitting when
I am wrong as it is one of the ways you learn
