Seawatch and moths

mandag 5. juli 2021
af Samuel Perfect

A total of 235 moths of 66 species were trapped overnight, by far the busiest night of the year! Year ticks came in the form of: Lempke’s Gold Spot (Lille Perlemormetalugle, Plusia putnami), Green Carpet (Grøn kammåler, Colostygia pectinataria), Smoky Wainscot (Sortstribe Græsugle, Mythimna impura), Small Seraphim (Pile-Seksvinge, Pterapherapteryx sexalata), Spilonota laricana, Piniphila bifasciana, Aphelia viburnana, and Celypha rufana.

Green Carpet (Grøn kammåler, Colostygia pectinataria),

A rather productive seawatch with some waders passing in good diversity. Highlights included a breeding plumage Curlew Sandpiper (Krumnæbbet Ryle, Calidris ferruginea), and a surprisingly high total of 44 Red-throated Divers (Rødstrubet Lom, Gavia stellata), and 496 Dunlin (Almindelig ryle, Calidris alpina), the highest day count of the year so far.
