Five species were new for Cnwc: 1 Crescent (photo), 2 Currant Pug, 1 Tinea semifulvella, 1 Agriphila selasella and 1 Mirificarma mulinella.
The Crescent is a wandering wetland moth, originating from who knows where; indeed wetland species were very much a feature of the night, with other wetland/bog wanderers including 3 Round-winged Muslin, 15+ Small Rufous, 1 Beautiful Snout, 3 Slender Pug, 2 True Lover's Knot, 1 Striped Wainscot, 1 Acentria ephemerella (Water Veneer), 2 Anarsia spartiella, 2 Yponomeuta rorella and 1 Agonopterix conterminella.
Other Macro highlights were 4 Antler Moth, 3 Beautiful Carpet, 2 Broad-bordered Yellow-underwing (photo), 1 Triple-spotted Pug and 1 Bordered Beauty.
Micros of interest (to me at least) included an all-black Prays (to be blogged about later), 1 Achroia griseella Lesser Wax-moth (photo), 1 Pammene aurana, 1 Ptycholomoides aeriferanus, 1 Monochroa cytisella, 1 Emmetia marginea (photo) and the migrant Nomophila noctuella Rush Veneer.
Moths were arriving at a rate of several individuals per minute and my smaller plastic trap was visibly shaking! Goodness knows how many more species would have turned up if I had continued until dawn as there were five common additions in the last 10 minutes.
