22nd October

Gem Mecyna asinalis

Weather: Mainly clear sky over night with a moderate southerly wind.

Brean Down moths: A very interesting night on the down with a few migrant stragglers in until 1:30am. It all went quiet as the temperature dropped until 3am when a weak front came through lifting temperature and then the main arrival of migrants started spiraling down from the sky. 1 Cosmopolitan, 1 Gem, 1 Mecyna asinalis, 15 Udea ferrugalis, 6 Pearly Underwing, 4 Dark Sword-grass, 4 Silver Y. Other highlights some of which are to be confirmed are Dusky-lemon Sallow, Autumnal Moth, Crescent Dart.

Burnham-on-Sea: A Delicate, Udea ferrugalis and 3 Silver Y
