Shore Wainscot

Shore Wainscot - I was so chuffed to find this in the trap this morning. The larvae feed on Marram so this moth has presumably hopped across the river from the Warren.
Two brand new macro moths this morning - that rarely happens these days. As well as Shore Wainscot and Bordered Sallow, I trapped Buff Arches, Small Blood-vein, Dwarf Cream Wave, Small Dusty Wave, Riband Wave, Garden Carpet, Common Marbled Carpet, Cloaked Carpet, Sandy Carpet, Grey Pug, V-Pug, Green Pug, Double-striped Pug, Clouded Border, Brimstone, Scalloped Oak, Peppered Moth, Willow Beauty, Common Wave, Poplar Hawkmoth, Elephant Hawkmoth, White Satin Moth, Rosy Footman, Common Footman, Buff Ermine, Heart and Club, Heart and Dart, Flame Shoulder, Large Yellow Underwing, Lesser Yellow Underwing, Purple Clay, Dot Moth, Bright-line Brown-eye, Lychnis, Clay, Smoky Wainscot, Dark Arches, Light Arches, Minor Agg, Common/Lesser Common Rustic, Uncertain/Rustic, Oak Nycteoline, Snout and Fan-foot. A number of 'micros'were trapped too.

Bordered Sallow - my second new species this morning.
