Ever the optimist I put the trap out last night - amongst the catch were some very large slugs but also a perfect Peach Blossom, a first for me. And I suspect, a Square Spot Rustic - can someone confirm that please?
Finally as I was packing up I noticed what I took to be another huge slug on the inside of the handle of the watering can a few feet away. It turned out to be a pristine Eyed Hawkmoth, another first for me.
