Bringsty Common September 20th

The first warmer night for ages, so out went 1 trap despite the stiff breeze.  Found a sheltered spot behind a hedge and the trap was very appealing to wasps during the night, which made me take extra care going through the egg boxes this morning. 18 species of macro and 5 micro.  Topping the bill was Lunar Underwing with 12 individuals followed by Autumnal Rustic with 10.  Late Summer/early Autumn moths like Frosted Orange, Sallow, Brown-spot Pinion, Beaded Chestnut, Black Rustic and Ypsolopha parenthesella all made appearances.  No migrants, but then the recent northerly winds will account for that.
