I expected more moths on a not too cold night with light rain.
The bats were flying and as I have told many people, "Warm drizzle is good for mothing".  Maybe I should add "usually" in the middle of there somewhere!
22 species of adult moths and Buff-tip larva.  Pink-barred Sallow and Light Emerald were the most numerous macros.  The 4 species of micro that hung around long enough to be ID'd were Acleris laterana/comariana, Archips podana, Acleris rhombana and Ypsolopha ustella.
