The Wax Moth (Galleria mellonella) was a diminutive specimen with a wing length of only 12mm. Red Underwing is a regular visitor to the garden trap (one appeared last night too) but it was a shame that it couldn't have been one of its crimson cousins which have been reported a number of times elsewhere! Tree-lichen Beauty continues to appear regularly, although there was just the one last night, down from a high of 18 on the 1st. A second Twin-spotted Wainscot visited on the 6th after the first ever garden record on 29th July.
