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.

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.
