Well, I ran the garden moth trap last night (31st) and recorded 86 in the trap. The previous night there were none. This was a conservative estimate of numbers as many were flying up with the egg boxes being moved. They must have moved in during the day yesterday I think, presumably on the front of the storm (that completely missed us - rain wise) that moved in the from the near continent. Glad I'm not growing any brassicas this year in the vegetable plot. No other migrant signs in the moth trap at all.
