Re: Beautiful Marbled in South Brockenhurst NF
- That's a pretty impressive list, Russell.
I too had a Beautiful Marbled in my trap at Magdalen Laver, Essex (VC19) on the night of the 18th August. This follows a Porter's Rustic on the 17th. I've also had my first three Rush Veneers of the year over the last few days. Other than these, there hasn't been significant migrant activity this far inland.

I think this is the 5th record for Hampshire. Given that there were two wasps buzzing around the funnel and a Hornet inside the trap I'm pretty relieved it hung around until first light!
