The conditions were perfect early evening.
Warm, humid with cloud cover, prompting the micro moths to take flight in droves.
But the sky cleared and a big waning moon lit up the garden, the temperature fell from 19 deg down to 13 and the expected huge haul of macro moths didn't happen, in fact the micros outnumbered macros for the first time I can remember.
Of the macros, the pick of the crop were Dusky Sallow, Campion, Small Ranunculus, Buff-tip and Maiden's Blush.
45+ micros were logged with 6 being added to the year list including one site first.
