National Moth Night - one

Not much in the way of migrants at Wallog last night just Silver Y and Rusty-dot Pearl.
However, we did find another Black Banded, if we had the time and the energy to search the whole of the coast where there is Thrift around I am willing to bet we would find lots more.  Is this just them having a good year? The next couple of years should prove the point one way or the other.
Most abundant was the ubiquitous Flounced Rustic, a couple of late ones - Magpie and Rosy Minor, 19 Brimstone Moths - mostly scattered amongst the grass, Feathered Gothic, Setaceous Hebrew Character, Purple Bar, Garden carpet and Autumnal Rustic plus others.
