The forecast didn't look too bad for last night, so I chanced running the trap in the garden. In the end it was a mild if damp night without any significant rain. 425 individuals of 61 species were recorded, with 227 Large Yellow Underwings making up over half the catch. Nothing terribly exciting however, the only snippets of interest provided by singletons of Azalea Leaf Miner, Anacampsis populella, Chequered Fruit-tree Tortrix, Agriphila geniculea, Rusty-dot Pearl, Rush Veneer, September Thorn, Svensson's Copper Underwing, Copper Underwing, Oak Nycteoline and 2 Vine's Rustics.
