|Unknown at the moment (Sawfly?) larvae|
With the chance of only a very light shower and the temperature staying in double figures overnight I set the moth trap up in the evening. The result was 15 moths of 9 species with three being new for the year.
|Hook-marked Straw-moth - very worn and very late|
The full list was
Hook-marked Straw-moth (Agapeta hamana) 1
Light Brown Apple Moth (Epiphyas postvittana) 2
Red-green Carpet (Chloroclysta siterata) 1
Lesser Yellow Underwing (Noctua comes) 1
|Lesser Yellow Underwing|
Setaceous Hebrew Character (Xestia c-nigrum) 2
|Setaceous Hebrew Character|
Brown-spot Pinion (Agrochola litura) 1
Lunar Underwing (Omphaloscelis lunosa) 1
Silver Y (Autographa gamma) 2
4 Siskin, 2 Meadow Pipit and a Pied Wagtail flew over the garden this morning and a White-tailed Bumblebee braved the grey overcast conditions.
Also by the trap was the small green caterpillar at the top of the page which I think is probably a Sawfly but which I have still to identify. It's looking very grey overhead now so it's an excuse to get my reference books out and try and get a name for the little critter.
