Cool, real cool!

Yes, a cool night in more ways than one, as, in the trap, there were 3 new species for the site, amongst 27 moths of 13 species.

There were two different sallows, a Pink-barred Sallow and a Barred Sallow (and I know Mike had one of these as well) I had Centre-barred Sallow and The Sallow last month. Lunar Underwings are considered as Sallows too.

Then there were 2 Green-brindled Crescents - moths with a subtle shade of metallic green which is not always obvious - and there is a  more plain brown version, which I have never seen.
