|Clifden Nonpareil, Stoke Common 26th August|
Even on its own this sighting would have made it a worthwhile visit. However, the three-hour session using five MV lights (six for the first hour until technical failure brought Ched George's trapping to a premature end) produced a really good result for the time of year. In excess of 110 species were recorded and other notables included Box Moth Cydalima perspectalis, Birch Mocha, Chevron, Narrow-winged Pug, Cypress Pug, Oak Processionary, Jersey Tiger, True Lover's Knot, Dotted Clay, Neglected Rustic (getting on for 100 seen), Beautiful Yellow Underwing, Heath Rustic, Hedge Rustic, Feathered Gothic, White-point (about 70 seen), Tree-lichen Beauty, Old Lady, Scarce Bordered Straw, Red Underwing & Pinion-streaked Snout.
