A few pretty moths

110 moths of 33 species during the night with the temperature dropping below 10C. There were 8 new for year once I sorted them all out, those being  -
a Ypsolopha sequella,  one White-shouldered House Moth, 2 Clouded Border, a single Swallow-tailed Moth, one Barred Red, two Short-cloaked Moth, a Dot Moth and a Smoky Wainscot. Another 4 Common Footman proving it's a good year for this species.
