Bringsty Common October 30th

Very mild last night and I ran one mv light all night. 23 species if you count November moth agg. as a single species. I shall be looking at octavals soon. November moth agg. topped the numbers at 20, followed by Yellow-line Quaker at 11. Mottled Umber appeared (2), so I have very little now to add to the list for year 1. I'll do another post when all the micros are id'd, but we are running well past 500 species so far for the garden. Other moths of interest to grace the trap last night were: Blood-vein, Snout, Sprawler, Grey Shoulder-knot, Blair's Shoulder-knot, Satellite and Grey Pine Carpet, plus the usual Yellow Underwing free group.
