Another good night for moths rarely seen in the garden with a second record of Acleris cristana and the first Six-striped Rustic since 2013.

Apodia bifractella was a surprise addition to the garden list at a time when traps are becoming dominated with S.H.Characters, Turnips and various Rustics. It appears to be just the second VC31 record.

2nd August 2018

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!
