This weekend is National Moth Night, covering evenings of the 10th,11th & 12th September. So to mark the weekend this was top be my 6th garden moth trapping session of the year. Few surprises but there was one, a Red Underwing, a garden tick. Not in the trap however, I noticed it on the side of the house and for a second I thought I had caught the biggy, a Blue Underwing, ahh I can but hope..
