Best moth of the night was another Pale Pinion, the second this year so far and a completely different moth from the last going on the subtle differences in markings.
I had tallied up 15 moths of 7 species initially this morning but, as you do I checked underneath the tub that shields the electrics for the trap and I finally found where the rest of my Clouded Drabs had ended up! With four just sitting there backed up by a fresh Chestnut...One unfortunately was deceased.
20 moths of 9 species was very pleasing for my tiny garden.
The weather towards the end of the week looks set to be a very mixed bag with some lovely sunny spells and torrential rain as possible with the temperature getting cooler for the night which isn't ideal for mothing.
