Last night 271 moths of 69+ species. New for us was narrow winged pug. First for us in UK Vestal, plus 13 diamond backed moths.
Five dark arches which we only usually get in ones or twos.
We think we have managed to ID the micros but have posted some here as confirmation of our opinion would be appreciated. Also posted are images of a Cnephesia species and Coleophora species. Bob & helen
