National Moth Night

My first ever contribution to National Moth Night, and although pulling out all the stops (MV light, actinic light, wine syrup and patrolling flowering plants) I only managed 37 macro species (143 indidivuals). By mighnight, the wine syrup rags and spots had drawn in 18 species, eight of which I failed to catch in the two light traps, so this was well worth the effort.

Only the second Copper Underwing I have caught here
