50 individuals in the garden trap last night comprising 22 species. Lunar Underwing was down to just 11, most of them on the lawn. New for the year were Blair's Shoulder-knot and Pink-barred Sallow. There was also a Common Footman which I guess is a later than usual record.
There were a couple of Beaded Chestnuts, plus this one photographed below. It has quite strong cross lines, but am I correct in thinking that this is a Beaded Chestnut as well?
I also discovered this small micro in the trap, measuring 6mm. Is it Gypsonoma dealbana?
