Moth Trapping (19 Aug 2013)

Moth trapping took place on the reserve.  Highlights included Heath Rustic, Neglected Rustic, Crescent, Bulrush Wainscot and Crambus hamella.  The last one is a micro moth and Prees Heath is believed to be the only site in the county for this species, and it probably only occurs on one other site in the West Midlands.
