More from the garden…

Since my return from France (and yes, I took my moth trap – pictures on my Flickr page soon) I havent had much chance to put the moth trap in the garden as I have been out doing some Autumn migration ringing….but at last I have had the trap out for a few nights.
A new moth for my garden, Copper Underwing, appeared on the morning of the 16th, in fact, 3 of them. I checked in the hope of one of them being a Svenssons but this was not to be.
I cant remember if the Antler Moth is a new species so will have to check my records at some point, but this was in the trap on the morning of the 17th August along with another Copper Underwing.
