The fifth trap this year, trying desperately to catch a migrant, Bordered Straw would be rather nice!! A rather cool and breezy night, with some light rain, think this was the culprit for a relatively poor trap. Still lots of Large Yellow Underwings though. Seems more this year than in previous? So results were in no particular order – Double-striped Pug 1; Large Yellow Underwing 99; Scarce Footman 1; Brimstone Moth 3; Willow Beauty 3; Common Rustic 2; Flounced Rustic 3; Mouse Moth 3; Copper Underwing 2; Lesser Yellow Underwing 5; Flame Shoulder 1; Six-striped Rustic 1; Agriphila tristella 6; Catoptria falsella 1; Agriphila geniculea 10; Crambus purlella 1; Epiphyas postvittana (Light-brown Apple Moth) 4; Hypsopygia costalis (Gold Triangle) 1; Hysopygia glaucinalis 1; Acrobasis consociella 1: Total 20 species.
