Sprawler at Dingestow

On 5th November I commented that the Abergavenny Sprawler was an excellent record, as I had only seen one in 20 years of trapping at Dingestow.  The next morning I walked out of the front door and found a Sprawler awaiting me under the porch light!

I ran the MV on the next two nights, but despite mild conditions and a southerly airflow had pretty limited returns.  A Grey Shoulder-knot on 6th and a December Moth on 7th were probably the highlights, among a rag-tag of somewhat worn autumn species such as Brick, Yellow- and Red-line Quakers and Beaded Chestnut.
