I only run a 6W actinic trap so don't expect big numbers, but yesterday and today I passed a 100 moths in the trap for the first time this year and probably for the last couple of years as well. Yesterday there were 44 species with another 40 this morning. New for the year were:Treble-bar, Yellow-barred brindle, Summer Fruit Tortrix, Cochylis atricapitana, Bucculatrix thoracella, and Bryotropha domestica. Best were 2 new micros for the garden list: Cryptoblabes bistriga and Rhyacionia pinicolana. I also had an interesting beetle yesterday which I think may the Nut Weevil.
