Two traps produced a respectable 236 moths of 57 species, 22 of which were micros. Nothing remarkable with the most interesting records being Ypsolopha sequella  2, Diamond-back Moth 1, Aproaerema anthyllidella  1, Mompha locupletella  2, Acleris emargana  2, Calamotropha paludella  1, Eudonia pallida  2, Rusty-dot Pearl 1, Platyptilia isodactylus  5 (probably the best species of the catch), Riband Wave 1 (odd specimen with very hooked wing-tip!), Dusky Thorn 4, Broad-bordered Yellow Underwing 1, Square-spot Rustic 35 (the commonest species), Green-brindled Crescent 1, Frosted Orange 3 & Pinion-streaked Snout 5. Plus a couple of mini-micros I can't name and probably wont have time to, what looks like a Cosmiotes and an all dark Gelechiid!
odd hook-tipped Riband Wave!
