Rye Harbour Moths

Highlights this morning were the second reserve record of Dewick’s Plusia (below) a scarce migrant, and yet another Clancy’s Rustic (the fifth since the 18th september!). Other migrants included singles of Delicate and Pearly Underwing and small numbers of Silver Y, Rush Veneer and Rusty Dot Pearl.
