Nantyffyllon actinic last night.

                         Female Black arches

                        Old lady

                        Knot grass, form salicis.
                        51 species on a muggy night. The trap was inundated with flying
                        ants and tiny beetles at first, a proper nuisance. But my best autumn
                        catch by a long way at this site. None of the usual Anomalous and
                        Neglected rustic I normally get at this time of year but a huge fem
                        Black arches (WL 31mm), Flounced rustic, Small rufous, Yellow
                        barred brindle, Dingy shell and Scrobipalpa costella were nice.
