Mothing the Night Away

It was warm and calm last night so I stuck the moth trap out after a couple of blanks last week. I finally caught something with some new species for the garden. 10 moths were trapped but a carpet type thing legged it before I got there. The trap consisted of:

1 Lesser Yellow Underwing
2 Common Marbled Carpet - new for garden
2 Green Carpet - new for garden
1 Garden Carpet - new for garden
1 Silver Y - new for garden
1 Flounced Rustic - new for garden
1 Square-spot Rustic
