Warm nights are good for trapping!

Normally, it would n`t be worth trapping on clear nights, but as it`s so warm the moths are certainly flying. A good and varied catch last night, though nothing exciting (and no signs of migrants). Still a few to identify, including one I know and just can`t remember its name! - a clear case of moth`er`s `zombie brain`, through insufficient sleep.
Anyway, just two pics - a double line and a photo showing size variation in elephant hawk-moth.
