With 302 species July is easily the best month for moth species in our garden. However the poor year continues with just 12 moths of 11 species this morning. The same day last year proced 30 species. I forgot to mention that when putting the trap out on Saturday evening I found a Cream-bordered Green-pea Moth on the ivy near the trap site. This was only my 2nd record of this species in the garden and I suppose shows that something unusual can still turn up even in a poor year.
