Five New Moths

In the past couple of days I have found five moths that I have not knowingly seen before. All were on Raasay but only one here at home to add to my list of West Suisnish moths.

The Clouded Silver came to light at home and the Striped Twin-spot Carpet to light when I took my trap to Leac. The other three were caught on the way to or from putting the trap out. Both the Clouded Silver and the Small Argent and Sable are pretty rare locally. There are not that many records for Striped Twin-spot Carpet or Heather Groundling either, but at least in the latter case this is probably down to under-recording – it is small and fast moving and found on the moor.
