Poplar Hawkmoth & Others

24 macro species from our usual three traps but the numbers were low.  The only notable species numerically was the Brown Silver-line, not surprising in view of our abundant bracken.  New for us this season were Poplar Hawkmoth, Brimstone Moth, Silver-ground Carpet & Common Carpet.  Also included were these two other attractive species - Pale Prominent & Peppered Moth which put in their first appearance last week.
