Nice warm night, new moon, so quite a few more moths - might have been even more, but the bats were out as well !! 35 moths of 21 species (so far - escapees to be rounded up from the skylight this evening). There must have been a mass exodus of Ringed China-marks from our pond - I saw several when walking around the pond looking for newts and other pond-life after dark, and there were 8 more in the traps as well. Also new for this year - Green Carpet, White Ermine, Chinese Character, Burnished Brass, Diamond-back (first since 2009), Eudonia angustea, Syndemis musculana, Small Waved Umber, Marbled ? Minor (agg), and Rustic Shoulder-knot.
Also for the interest of any entomologists out there, a Black Sexton Beetle (Necrophorus humator) and a Scorpion Fly, plus several thousand dead midges and small flies. Quite a collection, but no May Bugs yet - I live in hope.
Finally, a Speckled Wood in the garden this morning - FFY
