The shade temperature reached 34c yesterday in our garden and the moth trap did not disappoint with the biggest catch of the year: 65 moths of 32 species. new for the year were: Swallow-tailed Moth, The Festoon, Orange Moth, B.lacticolella, Meal Moth, Hollyhock Seed Moth, M. italica, C. unitella, and Z. isertana. However, best of all were 2 micros I plucked from the vanes at dusk last night whilst sitting in the garden. The were both new for the garden list: Dasycera oliviella and Pammeme regiana.
