Another Dot on the map?

Just an update from the garden here. Drizzling like crazy last night and I debated whether to run the light or not and then just before midnight I thought I'd take a quick look and if little happening I'd switch it all off. There were plenty of moths flying around so it stayed on. Reasonable list of macros in the end at 67 species, but micros were in short supply at just 14 species ( total numbers were good, but dominated by Chrysoteuchia culmella, Eudonia lacustrata and Pleuroptya ruralis). NFY were Double Lobed, Cinnabar and a female Oak Eggar. And I had so many Dot moths...35 to be precise. Peter Hall
