Encouraged by the milder nights, I ran 2 Robinsons at the northern end of Wigmore Rolls on the 24th for my customary 3 hours. It was nice and warm but fairly quiet and a lot of book reading ensued. 24 macro species and 7 micro species. Highest count was Common Marled Carpet at 19 individuals. First appearances for me of Chestnut and Yellow-line Quaker. Of more interest were Orange Sallow (3), Flounced Chestnut (3), Streak (1) and a Mallow (1). Peter Hall

Been quite the Groundhog Day here in Evesham with the trap primarily being visited by Setaceous Hebrew Character and Square-spot Rustic.
Autumnal moths have started to put in an appearance with Centre-barred Sallow, Lunar Underwing, Brown-spot Pinion and last night Black Rustic.
A nice surprise was a Scarce Bordered Straw, a first for my Evesham garden, I'd only recorded it in my Bidford garden in 2015 & 2017
