The highlight from the trap for looks was this rather smart Burnished Brass, a species that Graham also caught in his garden on the same night.
Another moth in the trap was the Small Angle Shades, a species that we have only record on a few occasions this spring. It is also one which has not featured here before.

The new species for us were in the form of a few micro moths. We recorded two species that I have not seen before, the first was this Barred Fruit-tree Tortrix.

The other new species was this Epiblema trimaculana, one of a few similar species. This is a common species which use hawthorn as the larval food plant.
