Simon Buckingham ran traps at the reserve on 1 Oct 2021. Just 27 moths of 11 species from the reserve. The highlight was a Pale-lemon Sallow (Cirrhia ocellaris, previously Xanthia ocellaris). This is just the sixth record from Herts and the first this century. This is the first record for the reserve and a milestone in being the 600th species of moth I’ve recorded there. Beaded Chestnut, Pink-barred Sallow and Barred Sallow were all new for the year.

Simon Buckingham ran traps at the reserve on 8 Oct 2021. 53 moths of 16 species from the reserve. Wasps were again a problem with around 300 from a single trap. Thankfully, I emerged unscathed this time. The Mallow was a new moth species for the year and I’ve got an interesting looking macro moth which will require some further study.
