The first Angle-barred Pug for the garden was the highlight of a very good night and appears to be the first VC31 record since 1974. Pempeliella dilutella was the second garden record following one in 2006 and Dark Spectacle the 3rd, with one last year and one in 2008.

208 moths of 58 species is easily the best haul of the year to date with several species new for the year. Elephant Hawkmoth, Middle-barred Minor, Beautiful China-mark, Eucosma cana and Hedya nubiferana are all annual. A very early Bordered Sallow was the first here for 3 years and I haven't seen Sloe Pug since 2008.
