Barred Hook-tip

On what looked like a perfect night for moths (warm and cloudy) the garden trap caught only 44 moths, 19 macros and 3 micros. The only new for us this year were a Yellow-barred brindle and a Barred hook-tip. There are only 27 previous county records for Barred hook-tip, the last 5 records were all in 2013. This species has the dubious distinction of never having been caught in the Rothamsted trap at Tregaron!
