  1. I've just looked in the Bucks database for Small Angle Shades and there are 626 records, with the latest being mid-August. 319 records in the Hereford database with the latest early August. So possibly very unusual Sarah.

  2. There are 1043 Ceredigion county records, of which 3 are from a second generation in September, the latest being on the 20th in 2003. I had a quick look at other counties and found November records only from Montgomeryshire and Yorkshire. Another surprising record in a very good catch for this time of year.

  3. Thank you both for checking the records. I chose a rainy night for trapping for a change and I was surprised at the good results (but only 1 moth actually made it into the trap).
