Hi Nick,

a great set of records and pictures. My favourite? - an unlikely choice maybe, but Single-dotted Wave is a fine little subtly patterned moth.

Alistair,
And an easy ID once you realise that it's not a Pug.
I wasted hours and even bought a specialist Pug book the other year, I did feel a fool!!

Hi Nick,

yes, pugs are enough bother without other moths impersonating them.

Hi Nick,
Had similar problem with Photo bucket, not that i have been uploading very much moving closer to the router solved the problem. Next time i tried from the original position and all worked fine may just be the case of signal strength.

Hi Nick,

another fine series of records and pictures. Your Small Phoenix with the solid bar is very much like the fourth picture for this species in the UK Moths website. I have one with the solid bar in front of me right now from last nights garden trapping.

All,
Week of the 28th tapered off in terms of both numbers and species to the point that it was becoming 'samey' however TWIN SPOT CARPET and ORANGE SWIFT were both new to site, the former having been a surprising absentee in the past.

All,
A rather mixed set of catches this week, unexpectedly two new species for site, Barred Chestnut and Blue-Bordered Carpet, also a conundrum for which I would appreciate your comments.
