Small Seraphim

A very mild night with cloud cover last night made us put traps in three different locations.
Epirrita species showed a vast difference between sites - 59 individuals in woodland, 5 in open wetland and 0 in the garden.  Feathered Thorn was absent from the woodland.
Even though some near-by large Leylandii were cut down last year we did manage one Blair's Shoulder-knot in the garden.
Two species of note were a late Narrow-winged Pug and a Small Seraphim much later than any previous record we know of.  Does anyone know of such a late record of the latter species?
