Finally managed to find some time and good weather to get the trap out overnight last night and I'm glad I did 9 species in the trap (maybe 10 I'm a little unsure if one of them is a Clouded Drab or a lead Coloured Drab) with 39 moths. Including at least 1 new one for me. and at least 2 new ones for the year (not including the new one for me).

The Complete List:


Early Thorn  1
Pine Beauty  1 NFM
Small Quaker  1
Common Quaker  19
Clouded Drab  4
Hebrew Character  10
Early Grey  1
The Herald  1 NFY
Diurnea fagella 1
