16th Sept 2011...399 species and waiting !

Overnight min temp: 11.8, Bright waning moon, windy
A disappointing night, given that it was warm and reasonably calm early evening.
I had high hopes of notching my 400th garden species for the year but I've had to put that on hold.
Just to rub it in, Captain Trappings ticked a Sallow and a Frosted Orange last night to catch up on my macro tally of 228 !
Frosted Orange is a species that has so far eluded capture in my garden but is reasonably common so it's high on my target species list.

8 x Lesser Yellow Underwing
2 x Small Dusty Wave
4 x Willow Beauty
