September is a good time to trap for Cypress Carpet, especially if you live anywhere near a patch of leylandii trees. Mark Ponsford used to catch this species when he lived in Burnham on Sea. His house at the time was not far from the caravan park which had a large hedge of leylandii acting as a windbreak. The species is spreading in the County. The specimen below was caught by Paul Chapman in Clevedon.
The wonderful caterpillar is a Festoon larva that was beaten from Oak in Norfolk when I was there recently. I have some other caterpillar shots from that same expedition that so far evade identification. More on this later hopefully.
