 We've reached the end of another month. Moth trapping has produced some of the usual Autumn favourites but catch numbers have been low, initially by cold nights and more recently by wet and windy ones.  It's always nice to get a Merveille du Jour and Pink-barred Sallow was only my 6th record. At Dungeness we managed to find one of the several Crimson Speckled moths that had arrived on the warm southerlies. Finally the tiny micro P. messaniella was new for the garden and brought the year list to 400 for only the 2nd time ever.
