Main highlight was the appearance of two Scarlet Tigers, which judging by reports seem to be ever more frequent. These were a garden first, if you ignore my only previous record of one found flying inside my car as I commuted home from Bedfordshire! My wife had seen a 'red' day flying moth a week or so ago which I'd said was probably a Cinnabar, but now I wonder.
Another presumably overlooked garden first was three Nephopterix angustella. Siting the trap next to a Spindle obviously helped here.
I did have a nice Mottled Beauty f. conversaria, which flew off as I pointed the camera at it and is only the third of this form I have seen here. Archips crataegana is also not seen that often here. I'll refrain from posting pictures of the two Mochas for Dave W!
