Watch out for those migrant species on these mild nights

During this mild spell there have been quite e few reports of migrant activity in the county. During the last week or so there have been reports of Rush Veneer, Vestal, Dark Sword-grass, Udea furrugalis, Silver Y and on the 14 Aug I recorded this splendid pyralid species, Palpita vitrealis. This is only the second county record of this species, it was first recorded at the same site in 2006.

So come on, get those traps up and running, as you may well record something special.
