Two actinic traps on the coast last night (one didn't work!).
Seventy eight moths (77/1) micros still thin on the ground, of twenty species.
Largest numbers were obviously Hebrew Character (31), Red Twin-spot Carpet (9), Brown Silver-line (6), Common Quaker (5), Flame Shoulder (3).  Other species - V-pug, Brindled Pug, Common Carpet, Powdered Quaker, Least Black Arches, Lesser Swallow Prominent, Garden Carpet,
Pine Beauty, Small Phoenix, Common Wave, Clouded Drab, Nut-tree Tussock, Flame Carpet and my favourite Muslin Moth. Why do I like the hairy ones?
