more mothing (20150612)

Emptying the moth traps at Rosentorp was livened up by the presence of a lesser spotted woodpecker in the oaks above. My first of the year and a species that is starting to get hard to find in BK?

My first Thyatira batis! What a beast.

In the evening just as it got dark I nipped up to the junction above Killeröd and dashed about with a lamp and a net. Quickly bagged nine species of moth many of them new to me! The best was a splendid fresh Thyatira batis - a much-wanted species. Overhead two nightjars and two woodcock, magic stuff.
