Last night was probably my worst ever July night with just 5 moths of 5 species this morning. The temperature went down just below 10c last night and it was also windy, I didn't trap Saturday night but went over to East Sussex to see some moths trapped at Hastings Country Park. I managed to photograph Pigmy Footman, which was a new species for me. There were also a couple of new micros: Metzneria metzneriella and Helcystogramma rufescens. I was pleased to be able to photograph The Drinker, which I've seen before but not at home.
