The List Grows...

A much smaller catch last night, probably something to do with the strength of the wind. Only had 43 moths of 27 species, but six of these were new for the garden.

I'll start with my favourite...

Black Arches.... more white than black I'd say!!!

This is a Pebble Prominet

Here it is again from above

A worn Crescent Dart

Knot Grass

Dunbar - overdue!

Rustic - equally overdue!

Another first for the garden was this micro, which really shouldn't be a micro 'cuz it's HUGE!...

...huge for a micro anyway! In fact it's Britains largest micro - Mother of Pearl

The rest of the haul was made up of: 6 Bright-line Brown-eyes, 3 Buff Arches, 3 Silver Y (where have they all gone?!), 2 Double Square-spots, 2 Large Yellow Underwings, 2 Uncertains, 2 Heart and Darts, 2 Peppered Moths, 2 Buff Ermines, 2 Small Fan-footed Waves and singles of: Rosy Footman, Snout, Dark Arches, Riband Wave, Shuttle-shaped Dart, Flame Shoulder, Scalloped Oak, Single-dotted Wave, Common Footman, Buff Footman and a Common/Lesser Rustic.

Need an decent sleep so I won't be trapping tonight, normal service will hopefully be resumed on Friday... (weather permitting that is!)
