Two cold nights produced just 3 moths yesterday morning and 6 this morning. However, today, I am pleased to say both The Flame and Treble Brown-spot were new for year. There was also a tortrix in the trap which I managed to get 2 photos of before it legged it. It proved to be 1219 Lathronympha strigana which is new for the garden.

Last year a large plant started to grow in the corner of our garden which I realise now is the Common Mullein, which this year has several Mullein Moth caterpillars on it. This is a species I've never recorded in the trap so can I count this species on the list now?
