A warm night at last

Chilly nights and northerly winds put me off trapping for the last 2 weeks, but the winds swung to the south for 23/9/17 so I put out 1 MV and 1 Actinic in the garden at Dingestow Court.  Results were pretty good for the time of year, with 27 species (>100 individuals), although migrants were poorer than anticipated.  Highlights were my third Dingestow Brown-spot Pinion (new for the site in 2015), several vivid Brindled Greens, a Dark Sword-grass, a Merveille du Jour and a couple of Acleris sparsana.
