I have rarely done much trapping in the garden mainly due to it being small, overlooked, and suffers from streetlight pollution. Therefore on the odd occasion I do give in and set a trap, I often get a NFG, new for garden, but bearing in mind I am starting from a low baseline...
Last night I actually set the two traps IN the garden rather than in the sheltered parking spot, this due to the neighbours adjacent to the back fence have moved away and my daughter was also away. Not too bad with 55 moths of 24 species, and five species NFG.
49.180 Piniphila bifasciana
49.254 Epinotia bilunana
70.008 Idaea seriata Small Dusty Wave
71.021 Ptilodon capucina Coxcomb Prominent
73.333 Diarsia mendica Ingrailed Clay
The two images below are Piniphila bifasciana which is a Scot Pine feeder and fairly scarce, the nearest Scots Pine are in the carpark of the nearest pub. I have seen one elsewhere in the County.
