Due to my weekend away in Waterton I'm a little behind with my blog.  This entry is for Friday 28th Sept.  Moth numbers continue to be low but there were 2 new species for the year, Grote's Satyr Moth (Ufeus satyricus) and American Swordgrass Moth (Xylena nupera).   One more needed to reach 200 backyard macro moths for the year!  I'll blog some details later but needless to say, there were higher numbers of moths in Waterton.  On Saturday morning I counted 32 moths of 13 species which included a few that I haven't yet identified.
