Back at Westcott, Bucks the garden actinic trap was again heaving with Lunar Underwings (335 of them, almost outnumbering the crane-flies!). 36 species were caught, of which Chestnut and Yellow-line Quaker were firsts for this season. A new-brood Beautiful Hook-tip also appeared, as did a Marbled White Spot which is another species not normally associated with this time of year. Two migrants graced the trap, one more Dark Sword-grass (my fourth of the last few weeks) and a smart Vestal.
