A bit warmer again overnight - and the midges are back! A good collection of moths with another 'autumn' species appearing, Rosy Rustic. Several micros included a garden first in the form of the huge Coleophora trifolii and a very pretty form of Ostrinia nubilalis, the first recorded here since 2007 and perhaps attracted by the maize plants in the vegetable patch as much as the MV light!

After a couple of cool nights something a bit warmer and the first trapping in weeks where I haven't been overwhelmed by midges. A few new for the year including the first of the 'autumn' species - Flounced Rustic and Copper Underwing. The highlight though was the second garden record of Brachmia inornatella.
