The 9th Garden Trap of the year  and I can’t believe I’ve done so few moth traps this year! Conditions were mild overnight for time of year and so I was in high spirits for something good. The trap turned-out to be rather disappointing. Species in no particular order were as follows – Common Marbled Carpet 2; Juniper Carpet 2; Feathered Thorn 1; November Moth 1; Large Yellow Underwing 1; Epiphyas postvittana (Light Brown Apple Moth) 2:
