Twenty four species last night, not including the ones that got away, and only three May Bugs! Hooray!!
Cinnabar moths attracted to the light, probably an under-estimate of 33.
Green Carpet flying off very easily so again there were probably more than the 17 we counted.
Singles of Rustic Shoulder-knot, Pebble Prominent, Eyed Hawkmoth, Shears, Dark-barred Twin-spot Carpet, Purple Bar, Common Marbled Carpet and a very worn Brindled Pug.
Other larger moths - Heart & Dart, Ruby Tiger, Common Wave, Treble Lines, Shuttle-shaped Dart, 3 late'ish Shoulder Stripe, Brown Rustic, Flame Shoulder and Common Pug.
Micros - Cochylis atricapitana, Crambus pratella, Agonopterix yeatiana, Scoparia pyralella and a Coleophora (that can be one of at least 8.)

Some very bad photos below, our so called Tough camera turned out to be not so though after all!
