Moth catches in my garden seem to be declining now, which to my mind is a little early as the late Summer stalwarts start to appear in numbers. Like Ian, the traps are dominated by Common Rustic aggs (with very few contenders for Lesser Common Rustic) and Large Yellow Blunderwings. On the 2nd I recorded 55 of the former and 36 of the latter. I've been making a record of Peppered moth forms in the garden and last night I caught my first carbonaria of the year. So the tally now stands at 220 normal form, 6 insularia and 1 carbonaria.
