Another go at the moth trap

I decided I'll to have another go at the moth trap last night as it will soon be packed up for the winter (sort of). Only 1 Tawny  Owl called night. Ib took the previous night's catch taken for a walk to avoid duplicates,  the contents were examined this morning and consisted of  14 moths of 11 species -

 Brown House Moth (Hofmannophila pseudospretella)  1
 Clepsis consimilana  1
 Light Brown Apple Moth (Epiphyas postvittana)  2
 Red-green Carpet (Chloroclysta siterata)  1
 Common Marbled Carpet (Chloroclysta truncata)  1
 Spruce Carpet (Thera britannica)  1
 Setaceous Hebrew Character (Xestia c-nigrum)  1
 Blair's Shoulder-knot (Lithophane leautieri)  2
 Sallow (Xanthia icteritia)  2
 Angle Shades (Phlogophora meticulosa)  1
 Rosy Rustic (Hydraecia micacea)  1

Nothing new so the Waldridge moth list for the year list remains on 239

2-3 Peacock butterflies visited the garden this afternoon, where I disturbed a number of Seven-spot Ladybirds during a tidy-up.
