I have read that there has been a large decline in the number of Light Brown Apple moths this year. Well, all I can say is that they have decimated my apple crop like never before and this is one pest species that I do not tolerate in my garden. Numbers of them have been very high. Interestingly, whilst Light Emeralds turn up in the garden every year, they have never been recorded in double figures here before.

An amazing spectacle last night - 20+ Silver Y moths feverishly nectaring on white valerian outside our sitting room windows as night fell. I managed to net one, a pristine moth, which I judged to have only recently emerged, meaning perhaps that these were not migrants. but home grown Silver Ys. The others immediately scattered!

3/4 September 2012: total 73, species 18 (Min 11.1C, Max 14.5C, medium- stars, scant breeze, bright moon). I have reported in the past that it seems to me that I gather up more moths before I go to bed, than in the morning when I check the trap and that most of these are not actually inside the trap, but have settled on surfaces all around. It is for that reason, and why it is possible for me to run the trap in all weathers, that I place it just inside the door of my greenhouse, which now has the affectionate name of The Sussex Moth Hotel. Yesterday, however, I spent most of the day undergoing a quite unpleasant procedure in hospital and really did not feel up to checking anything before I went to bed, as I was still very drowsy and unsteady on my feet and this could account for the lower number of species caught.

2/3 September 2012: total 95, species 35 (Min 14.8C, Max 15.4C, medium- stars, calm, bright moon). So far, we are not seeing the common Large Yellow Underwing in anything like its usual large numbers: a side effect of the very wet weather this year? There are also none of the usual parasitic wasps and ichneumons anywhere to be seen. Of note, however, was what I think was a Large Yellow Underwing, which spiralled down to settle on the grenhouse roof. Less than 10 seconds later, and within just a few short feet of me, one of our local bats swept in from below the other side of the fence, zoomed over it and grabbed the poor unfortunate moth!

30/31 August 2012: total 93, species 28 (Min 7.9C, Max 13.7C, clear, breezy, full moon). OK, so I cheated! I went away for a day and left the moth trap light on all the time. So, it worked and there was a good sample of species. The conditions have confounded me, as I was really expecting to see far fewer moths.

Apparently, there has been a huge influx of them into the country. Now, just as things are really hotting up this year, I have to spend several nights away from home visiting family and friends!

At least we are alive to the situation and are very busy indeed exterminating them before they do further damage to the carpets. They even lay eggs on glass! Once you get your eye in you can see them and eliminate them as well.

The Clothes moth saga continues, with a very thorough 'Spring' clean, wiping out dozens of cases and many moths lurking under the book shelves, including eggs, which covered the wall paper and painted woodwork.

29/30 July 2012: total 29, species 16 (Min 6.8C, Max 9.7C, medium+ stars, breezy, bright moon). This mothing season has reverted to its dismal norm for the year. After a day of occasional very heavy prolonged rain, hail and thunder, I was "thunderstruck" (sorry about that!) to meet a guy on a dragonfly survey who actually waterered his "south-facing" garden this morning! Bloody hell! After a summer such as this! We have what is beginning to seem like a serious clothes moth problem in the house and despite instant termination, more and more turn up every night. I really do shy away from damaging any moths at all, but in these circumstances I see little alternative....

With something like 7 new garden species over two nights, I simply cannot keep up! After what has been an absolute disaster of a year for butterflies, which must have drowned in their hundreds on our local nature reserve, today produced a total, utterly incredible, count of nearly 2,250: an incredible record indeed! They all seem to have hatched out in the very recent really hot temperatures and are hard at it bonking away like mad. Long may it continue. After 2.5 hours covering our transect, we were both exhausted at the end of it all.

19/20 July 2012: total 41, species 19 (Min 9.1C, Max 13.7C, almost total thick cloud, breezy, still very wet underfoot). Despite the conditions, it was inexplicably a very poor mothing night.

14/15 July 2012: total 43, species 19 (Min 10.7C, Max 11.9C, zero stars, calm, rain!). I have been away in the North, in Yorkshire and Derbyshire. I took no moth trap with me, nor any uv light, and yet I saw some really great moths, attracted to the lights in the window and the pollen on the beautiful native flower borders. It was stunning! I saw my first ever Chequered Pearl (1358 Evergestia pallidata), my first female Ghost Moth (0014 Hepialus humuli humuli), my first ever Map-winged Swifts (0018 Hepialus fusconebulosa), including the form gallicus and my first ever Yarrow Plume (1504 Gillmeria pallidactyla). Then there were great views of Latticed Heath in a pristine SSSI for wild flowers (we were the first to visit in several months) and a lovely Shaded Broad-bar on one of the magnificent reserves. Altogether quite remarkable! I will get the images up once I get to draw breath.
