With the cloud, came the rain and wind

Three Small Tortoiseshell yesterday but nothing else. A rather clear night last night to start but with the cloud, came the rain and wind. Only 17 moths of 11 species in the trap when I checked it, plus a couple of Common Wasp. A late Phoenix was my only one this year and 3 Mouse moth were the best there was.
Apart from that it was very quiet, a couple of flyover Siskins weren't much compensation neither was my first Common Evening-Primrose (Oenothera biennis), growing on the grass verge along Waldridge road.
Just back to work and the remains of a hurricane to look forward to.
