Creigiau 30 August

13C when I put the box out but as the sky cleared the temperature dropped to approx 7C so another quiet night. 33 moths of 18 species, again dominated by the yellow underwings ( 9 'large' and 2 each of 'lesser' and 'lesser broad-bordered').

Marbled Beauty was a 'first for the year' but the highlight was a very pretty Pyrausta purpuralis - at least that's what I think it was - which is new for me.
