Tried the Robinson 125 last night (ST5715, VC9, Dorset).  I was in and out till 1 am. potting various things - it was a very good night with at least 75 species.  The trap was stuffed in the morning and many got away before they could be counted.

Highlights are the pyralid Phlyctaenia stachydalis which is very similar to the more common P. coronataCypress Carpet - after getting my first the other night, and then another, I had a total of 6 last night.  Four of these were on a wall by the trap this morning.  Dingy Shell is pretty scarce in Somerset with no records from the south west of VC5.
