The three lights were quite busy and other species seen which are worth mentioning included Mocha, Royal Mantle, Satin Beauty, Great Oak Beauty, Red-necked Footman, Kent Black Arches and Slender Brindle. The two images below were taken at one of the lights, mainly because I think Clouded Magpie is one of those moths which always looks stunning at the trap but is a bit of a disappointment if photographed in daylight!

Amongst the micros were two particularly noteworthy species, Pseudopostega crepusculella (only about the third Bucks record) and Ethmia dodecea (which was seen at all three traps and seems to be quite well established in this area of the county).
