11th Aug 2011....Lull

Overnight min temp:- 14.3 deg
Overcast, calm.
Fen Wainscot was among the 52 species last night, along with a new micro, Limnaecia phragmitella, and one that looks like a worn Turnip Moth, but the antenna isn't feathered ?
I intended to retain it for the recorders but it escaped during the photo shoot and before I could rescue it, the cat ate it ! (No, it wasn't a Puss Moth or Catoptria) )

Weather looks ok if the rain holds off....4 or 5 new species would be a nice little Brucie !
