Salem (night)

Set the trap last night (saturday) and did what others have been doing and got up stupidly early (4:30) to sort them. Good job I did as all but about 10 of the almost 70 moths were outside the trap. Over 30 species for me including peppered moth (FFY and most common with 16), poplar hawk, great prominent (first for me i think), clouded border, puss moth, grey birch, pale pinion, buff ermine, white ermine, buff-tip and the micro that Chris had (Pseudoswammerdamia combinella). I also had a couple of other micros I couldn't get anywhere with (I'm not even sure if they're not the same species...) so if anyone could help with them I'd be grateful.
