I tried my 6W actinic last night. Far fewer moths as expected. The bias was strongly in favour of geometers rather than noctuids. 43 macros and 10 micros with one remaining that is most likely going to go unidentified. I consider this to be a well above average catch. I didn't catch any first brood Red Twin-spot Carpet nor Early Thorn so these along with Magpie have been added to my list. The first Blue-bordered Carpet, a species that I don't frequently encounter is photographed below.
