Moth night 1...

We had a successful moth morning here at Parc Slip with (with Paul's help) over 90 species recorded in the end with my highlight being my first ever red-necked footman. Also not often caught here were alder kitten, broken-barred carpet, green silver-lines, lobster moth, valerian pug (thanks Paul) and Freyer's pug which was also new to the site (thanks Paul!).
A lot new for the year and plenty of showy species for the people who came along. Also our highest count of diamond-backs with 42. As far as hawk moths go it was just a poplar and an elephant. A couple I'm not sure of:
Lesser cream wave?
Valerian pug?
Not sure
Eudonia lacustrata?
