This morning, an early check on the trap showed what had been anticipated, the best total so far in 2013. 3 large nutmegs, several flame shoulders, 2 green carpets and a poplar hawkmoth made up the regular visitors. However, of more interest were a treble lines, small magpie, marbled minor and cinnabar moth, all new for the year. I noted that I had omitted the cinnabar from my list, therefore increasing my moth total for the garden to 258 species.
I look forward to another good night, as at present there is a good temperature and overcast skies. Worth an early rise again and perhaps a little time at the trap after dusk.
