|Black Rustic, Westcott 30th October|
As I've already mentioned, Black Rustic has been one of this year's real winners locally. The garden count for 2019 has now reached 925 and it has been present in the garden trap every single night since 14th September. The moth was first seen here on 3rd September and the peak count was on 29th September when 77 were recorded. It usually peters out by the end of October but I have had November records for the garden in 2011, 2012, 2015 & 2018 so there's still a chance of a handful more yet.
