This is the joint latest record for this species and surprisingly is only the 25th record for the county; the specimen I caught at Park Mill on 3rd Sept 1996 was at a time when I was recording the date I checked the trap rather than date I set it. Interestingly this specimen has two dots in the median band
44 species last night, the highlight being a Barred Hook-tip, only our second new species for the garden this year, although a serious lack of trapping since July might have something to do with it. Unsurprisingly Large Y.U. was the commonest species (87), followed by Lesser Y.U. (45), postvittana (18) and Flame Shoulder (10) the only other species making double figures. 1 ferrugalis and 2 Silver Y were the only migrants.

  1. There was a Barred Hook-tip at Porthkerry a few days ago too.
