Some nice species there, Roger! A Large Wainscot was NFY here last night. Andy

Nothing too exciting for me, but Yellow-line Quaker and Feathered Thorn were new for the year over the weekend. A Dark Sword-grass was also good and I got to 14 species on Friday night. 13 species on Sunday night was still pretty good and Silver Y keeps turning up in odd ones and twos.

Trapped in all my usual three locations last night. Dark chestnut, feathered ranunculus, feathered canary-shouldered and dusky thorns. Very smart large wainscots and angle shades around. A few green-brindled crescents but all seem to be the 'brown' sort this year. I think we've lost the best of the weather now.

Feathered Thorn was NFY in the garden last night, and I found a pristine Brick in the car park at work yesterday (only my second record, and the first was very worn). Andy

Yes, brick does seem thin on the ground. I've only had two in 4-5 years trapping in Cumbria and one in Devon.

One of our local experts suggested tomorrow night as having high potential in view of the likely weather.

Low numbers for me the past three nights, even when it was mild on Wednesday night. However, of all things, Brick was new for the year last night. :)

Merveille du jour was the pick of the bunch last night

Trying all 3 locations again tonight.

Juniper Carpet and November Moth (checked the abdomen, technically a new species as I've previously recorded them as agg.) were NFY here last night. Andy
