A disturbed trap.

I got up early to find the trap partially open, probably a cat, curse it. Nevertheless I had a few moths including Elephant and a life - Bud Moth - somehow this common tortrix has eluded me for years!

I also had Carcina quercana - not rare, but attractive, and deceptive as it looks so much like a tortrix.

 I also caught an odd-looking dart, which at first glance I took to be a pale, worn, Heart and Club. However, close examination persuaded me that this was not worn and that it was a Sand Dart. What do you think? It's paler than the other Sand Darts I have caught.
