The weather proved to be almost ideal: cloudy and humid, although the ground was sodden and all my gear got soaked. 56 species were recorded, the highlight being the scarce tortricid Spatalistis bifasciana. There are only 3 previous VC41 records, but interestingly one of these was from the same site when Jake and Mike trapped here in June 2003.
Five species were new for ST08: Orange Footman, Dwarf Pug, Argyresthia conjugella, Bryotropha terrella and Nematopogon metaxella. Also worthy of mention were Lobster (7), Satin Lutestring, Miller, Sharp-angled Peacock, Larch Pug, Dingy Shell and Double Line.
