Bringsty Common 4 days later...

A mild night, but very damp with drizzle and mist, but I ran one Robinson down the bottom of the garden and it was quite busy.  With the winds again becoming southerly I was more hopeful of some migrants, but only 2 Nomophila noctuella blessed the trap from foreign lands. 239 moths comprising 23 macro-moth species and 12 micro-moth species.  Topping the bill was Lunar underwing with 30, followed by Large Yellow Underwing (24) then Setaceous Hebrew Character (21) and Brown-spot pinion (21).  Other Autumnal species were Pink-barred Sallow, Sallow, Beaded Chestnut, Black Rustic, Frosted Orange, 16 Autumnal Rustic, Vine's Rustic.  Rather unsually for me at least, 1 Red Underwing was also in the trap rather than sitting on a nearby wall.
