Trapping at Pilmoor, VC62, 28 Aug 2016

What a difference 3 weeks make!  Taking the first opportunity of time off following the excellent previous visit only 22 nights before, this proved to be somewhat of an anticlimax.  I trapped in the same location hoping to repeat some of the success of the previous visit and hopefully to secure some specimens of Anacampsis blattariella and the closely related and rare populella which I was sure I had caught before.  Regretfully neither put in an appearance and numbers and species were well down with just 74 of 24 species.  Besides an Angle-stripe Sallow the best was the first Yellow-barred Brindle of the year.
