An extremely busy night produced 3 new species for the garden (The Phoenix, Small Ranunculus and Eudemis porphyrana) - something that seldom happens any more. A very smart Tree-lichen Beauty was new for the year as was a less showy Plain Wave.

A very good night for moths seldom seen in the garden. Acrobasis repandana was last recorded in 2006 and Rhodophaea formosa in 2007. There were also 2nd garden records for Buff Footman and Lunar-spotted Pinion.

Two scarce moths for the garden were the highlight of a very busy night. The second record of Aethes tesserana is a much smarter individual than the previous one in 2015. Unfortunately the fourth record of Peach Blossom was of another rather battered moth.
