Picking Up Slowly in Central Oxford

Catches have been improving slowly over the last few nights and I managed the dizzying heights of 14 moths last night! Two were new for year for me, namely Buttoned Snout and Flame Carpet, the latter actually being NFG. I've noticed quite a few more Garden Carpets, Shuttled-shaped Darts and Muslins over the last few days. I also had my third record of the rare county micro Psychoides filicivora on the 29th which now makes my garden the most prolific site for this species in the Oxfordshire though actually it may well just be the same individual being trapped three times!
