61 species recorded in the garden trap this morning with migrants represented by singles of Rusty-dot Pearl, Small Mottled Willow and Ni Moth, the latter a new species for the garden. Dark Arches has taken over as the most abundant species with about 80 noted, followed by 25 Garden Grass Veneers, 20 Heart & Darts and 14 Elephant Hawk-moths and Uncertains.
Not the freshest specimen in the box, but undeniably Ni

  1. My most abundant species last night was Chysoteuchia culmella (58), with Riband Wave and Heart & Dart joint second (15) and Dot Moth in third (12).
    Single Silver Y & Diamond-back again the only evidence that there are migrants around.
