Surprisingly quiet in spite of the very mild weather.
Nice to see 2 more Acrolepiopsis assectella (one hibernating in the garden shed, one to light) plus Ypsolopha ustella to light.
Best for me was Phyllonorycter trifasciella which landed on a window mid-morning, a very fresh 3rd brood from the honeysuckle in the garden.
Also in the debris beside the trap were several of these little hoppers, which didn't like being exposed to the light. Obviously not moths but perhaps someone can identify them.
