Moths of Upton Warren

We've just submitted our annual moth count report for Upton Warren to the Trust.

In all we recorded an excellent 2671 moths of 295 species on seven trapping sessions. Of these 103 were new for the reserve and 192 were confirmations. This takes the number of lepidoptera records for the reserve from 348 to 451.

In addition I have been able to report a number of caddis fly's attracted to the light traps to the Trusts Record.

We're hoping to continue our recording at Upton Warren from April.
