Moth Night, night 1

Well at least the good weather held for the first of the three Moth Nights, and resulted in my biggest garden catch of the year with 43 species. Nothing remarkable in the catch, but I had another Cochylis nana (managed a slightly better photo this time), Cherry Bark Moth Enarmonia formosana, Eudonia pallida (x3), Cypress Carpet (x2), May Highflyer and Green Silver-lines (surprisingly only 2nd garden record). Diamond-backs down to 90, also a Silver Y.

It looks like the rain *might* hold off for the Alun Valley event tonight, and it should be pretty muggy, so do come along if you can. Details on Moth Night website.
