Actinic out last night with just 13 species. New for the garden this year are the Vestal and Lunar Underwing which is another autumn signature moth. I also had a Vestal fly in through an open window on Thursday evening (14th September).

Plus lots of large crane flies, which I must say are unwelcome house guests with the family this time of year.
