Still plenty flying

Yes, the temperature did not drop too low, in spite of yet another wet night and there were 43 moths in the trap this morning.

Most of the usual suspects for this time of the year though some still to come, with a late Copper Underwing being a pleasant surprise.

Two more species to add to the Strettons Moth List, both of them micro-moths and both fairly common. The first was an Acleris sparsana, a grey coloured tortrix and the other was an Agonopterix arenella, which was actually on the porch door when the light was left on.
