  National Moth Night was run over the 3 nights this weekend 10-12 June. Results here were generally disappointing, with just 32 species recorded (list below). Best records were Pale Oak Beauty which was my first for 5 years, Epinotia bilunana-the first for 4 years and Nematopogon schwarziellus which was new for the garden list.
