Moths a-plenty

I too had a very prolific catch last night, estimated 200+ individuals of more than 70 species, far more than I've ever had before in a single sitting.  They include several micro species that unfortunately I may never have time to identify, being (a) too difficult, and (b) we're haymaking!  There was nothing that I haven't had before, but nevertheless it was nice to have a few firsts for the year: True Lover's Knot, Marbled White Spot, Peach Blossom, Rivulet, Sharp-angled Peacock and Small Fan-foot.  Sadly no Cloaked Carpet yet, only a very nice Sharp-angled one.  Numerically, Double Dart and the Ermines still predominate, closely followed by Peppered Moth and Coronet.
