3 November, 1 December
Quite overcast last night with a little drizzle but I put the moth trap out. 11 moths of probably 8 species was better than I expected and produced a new one for the year. The catch included 3 November Moth species which I am going to keep and examine over the weekend but suspect are one November Moth and two Autumnal Moths. A single December Moth was the first since .... well actually, last December!, A Chestnut was the first I've seen since March and my second Rusty Dot Pearl of the year plus 2 Silver Y were migrants. 2 Red-line Quakers and a Spruce Carpet made up the rest of the catch.
