All in all a good night with 43 species represented and a total of 80 moths. A good haul for the garden.
Several new for the year moths, that are always expected in early July: swallowtail moth, Freyer's pug, dingy footman and latticed heath in the macros and Anania coronata and Udea prunalis in the micros. However, new for the garden was a fine example of Argyresthia goedartella, an amazing metallic gold micro, common for Herts. but needs birch trees nearby.
