Garden Trap number 7 and a disappointment. Conditions were perfect on the evening of the 12th but overnight temperature dropped and then heavy rain set in. Result was basically a trap full of “Underwings”. Trap results in no particular order – Large Yellow Underwing 27; Lesser Yellow Underwing 5; Broad-bordered Yellow Underwing 1 female; Brimstone Moth 3; Garden Carpet 1; Willow Beauty 1; Square-spot Rustic 2; Brown-spot Pinion 1; Epiphyas postvittana 3; Eudonia angustea 1:
