A slightly warmer night (11.5c) produced 26 moths of 9 species (16 Flounced Rustics). We've now reached the end of August and the warmer weather recently has boosted numbers for the year. At the end of August last year I had recorded 253 species ( 164 Macros & 89 Micros). This year the figures are 235 species (142 nacros & 93 Micros). So somewhat surprisingly the Micros have passed lasy year's figure-helped a bit by the new Micro Field Guide, but the Macros are still well down.
