Yesterday morning, following a chilly night of 6.5c, there were only 5 moths in the trap. However, Freyer's Pug was new for the year. This morning there were 15 moths of 10 species, including the year's first Large Yellow Underwing. I spent an enjoyable Saturday morning at the "Discover Moths " event at the Romney Marsh Visitor centre, where I saw my first ever Obscure Wainscot. We've reached the end of another month and the year total for the garden stands at 80 species, which is a great improvement on last year where the total at the end of May was only 26.
