27/05/2013 moth trapping

After two sunny days I finally got my trap out again (can't trap when I'm on nights unfortunately) and it was OK, the weather wasn't perfect (when has it been!) it started clear and cool but when the humidity picked up so did the rain, it was bucketing down at 04:00. A

Anyway 12 Moth of 10 species in there (mainly in the rap only a couple on the fence), including 2 new species for my trappings.

2 Common Pug
2 Brimstone Moth
1 Bee Moth
1 Emmelina monodactyla
1 Garden Carpet
1 Seraphim
1 Pale Prominent
1 Brown House Moth
1 Garden Pebble (NFM)
1 Purple Thorn (NFM)

Well I didn't get the photos I hoped so here are a couple I did get:

Pale Prominent
