Standard late summer fare

I shouldn't be disappointed by a haul of 38 Macro species and 9 Micro species to MV in the garden, but any trap dominated by Large YU, Lesser B-b YU and Flame Shoulder looks inherently dull.  A little brightness was provided by 5 Lesser Swallow Prominent (photo), 2 August Thorn and 1 Purple Thorn, as well as 4 Dark Marbled Carpet (wish I'd photoed one as they look amazing!).  Also my first Hedge Rustic (photo) and Rosy Rustic (photo) of the autumn, and slightly more Eudonia truncicolella than E. mercurella.  Dotted Clay, Satin Beauty, Coxcomb Prominent, Slender Pug and Flame Carpet (photo) also turned up.
