I've been making a habit this year of catching moths that are just the second or third garden records of the species. This continued last night with Agonopterix purpurea and The Olive - both recorded just once before, both in 2006!

An influx of male Oak Processionary moths seems to be underway with several recorded in Cambs VC29. There were two here, one in each of the traps, perhaps the second and third county records after one in 2012. In addition a Dusky Thorn was new to the garden.

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.
