Rye insects

28th October 2009, Wednesday

Yesterday here in Rye, a Dark Bush-cricket (Pholidoptera griseoaptera) was settled on my moth trap in the morning, and later a Western Conifer Seed Bug (Leptoglossus occidentalis) was found on my car window (see Andy Phillips’s article and photo on RxWildlife on 1st September). Today the best moths were Dark Sword-grass (a migrant), Dark Chestnut and Green-brindled Crescent.
