The bright lights of Penglais

Having read the weather forecast, I decided not to put a trap out last night. Instead, I walked round the area this morning looking for moths attracted by the lights. My haul included 11 macros, with first-for-year Common Emerald, Single-dotted Wave, Small Bloodvein and Dingy Footman; 7 micros included my first Crambus perlella for the year. On the way home, I dislodged my first Tachystola acroxantha and an as-yet-unidentified micro (best guess so far is the bagworm Diplodoma laichartingella, but it doesn't look quite right) from a hawthorn bush.
