Macro abundance was of course far lower and, without trying too hard to work out all the totals, Coronet seems to have topped the list with 30 individuals seen. Scarlet Tiger visited each trap, as did Orange Moth and Rosy Footman, while we also had such nice species as Poplar Lutestring, Large Emerald, Little Emerald, Plain Wave, Satin Beauty, Barred Red, White Satin, Red-necked Footman, Four-dotted Footman, Purple Clay, Grey Arches, Minor Shoulder-knot, Scarce Silver-lines & Blackneck amongst many others. Of the Bernwood specialities we got a double-digit count of Small Black Arches, all looking nice and fresh, but the eight examples of Common Fan-foot were rather worn and the moth seemed to have passed its peak already. Unfortunately Triangle failed to show this time but we're sure it was up in the tops of the oaks under which we trapped, probably laughing at our efforts to entice it down!
