Not a lot of moths

... only 51 moths, of 12 species, but three of those were new to the garden, so I suppose that's not too bad. And one of those - Large Thorn - is Nationally Scarce, so I'm quite pleased about that (check the distribution map).

I was kind of hoping to catch a Frosted Orange, like we did at Beeston on Sunday, but I got an Orange Sallow instead. It's pretty, but not quite as nice as the Frosted Orange. Maybe next time.
