Angle Shades is a common species in my garden and there are plenty of larvae still active at night that have yet to pupate.
Numbers peak in June with the second generation peaking in September, according to the current literature but can be found all year round in favourable conditions and the Autumn generation numbers are boosted by migrants.
My garden records more or less follow this pattern, apart from an exceptionally cold June in 2015
