Modest returns

A clear night and cold conditions led to quite a modest catch overnight in Batch Valley, my smallest yet since I started trapping. I still managed to find three new species for the garden, Green Carpet, Brown-spot Pinion and Hedge Rustic. Otherwise it was the usual suspects, though this included a fine Antler Moth, with the beautiful white antler-shaped mark on the forewing.
