Traps left overnight at the Chiltern Open Air Museum with Andy King produced a list of 103 species (41 micro, 62 macro) and there are a few more in Andy's fridge.

A few new species for the year list included Opostega salaciella, Bucculatrix ulmella, Agonopterix purpurea, Batrachedra praeangusta, Zeiraphera isertana, Six-striped Rustic, Square-spot Rustic, Small Square-spot, Straw Underwing and an out-of-place Brown-veined Wainscot.

We also managed to catch 3 Tree-lichen Beauty so I get the feeling these are going to be commonplace before too long!
