Very small numbers of moths now with just four last night despite reasonable weather. They included my first Mottled Umber of the year, only my fourth record in six years at this address. Recent catches have included 3 Cypress Carpets, a moth I only caught one of last year after having 10 in 2006. At the end of October I spent a week near Alicante. I was interested to see how numerous the migrants I've been missing in my garden were. However apart from a number of Vestals and a couple of Small Mottled Willows I hardly saw anything else. Suprisingly the most common butterfly was the Plains Tiger which was seen in good numbers in many places.
