Latest garden moths

Large Yellow Underwing numbers have dropped to double figures over the last few days due to cooler nights and a full moon in the clear sky.
Still plenty of Square-spot Rustic and Flounced Rustic
On the 8th Sept the first Lunar Underwing turned up, soon to become the most numerous moths in the traps.

The Agonopterix below is a little worn but it looks like A. nervosa. (tbc)

 A steady stream of autumn Small Blood-vein, lots of fresh Garden Carpet and the smaller 2nd or 3rd generation Brimstone Moths and Willow Beauty are coming through.
Other 2nd generation singles include Oak Hook-tip, Treble-bar, Small Square-spot, Common Marbled Carpet and Campion.
