I had a very busy trapping session overnight on Tuesday (13th) with c70 species in the trap, including three completely new to me: scallop shell, lesser-spotted pinion and dot moth. I also had about 20 year ticks. It took me ages to ID and, where appropriate, photograph everything.
This evening I netted another new moth in the garden, large emerald.
I am also uploading a picture of one of the egg trays to give an idea of what they looked like - this was taken about three hours after dawn when quite a few moths had already flown away.
And a couple of year ticks....
