On returning at 6am this morning I was pleasantly surprised with the catch, which included multiple new for years and countless Small Quaker (the total tally was 98)
Best moths included recent emergences of Lunar Marbled Brown and Frosted Green and a slightly aberrant Hebrew Character. The micro's turned up in good numbers as well for the first time this year with Diurnea fagella and Eriocrania subpurpurella being the most common.
