Wednesday 6th. Lound Moth Trapping Session, 'Neatholme Scrape'.

The Lound Moth Group set up two Robinson 125W Moth Traps around the South and Western edges of 'Neatholme Scrape', where a single 72.0760 Catocala fraxini (Clifden Nonpareil) a migrant Moth normally found in Central and Northern Europe was attracted to the trap. This particular Moth had never been recorded in Nott's before and if accepted by Dr Sheila Wright the Nott's Macro Moth Recorder, it will be the 615th Moth recorded at the LBC/IVNR recording area.

The name "Clifden nonpareil" is derived from the location of the first British records, at the Cliveden estate in Berkshire in the 18th century, "nonpareil" meaning "without equal" in French. (source Wikipedia).
