The species total for June alone has been 174 and it is a great struggle to keep on top of it all at the moment.

WOW! A warmish night but with the temperature falling, dead still, followed by light rain and then it all kicked off. The Hawkmoths have landed! First an Elephant Hawkmoth dropped in right next to the trap, quickly followed by a Lime Hawkmoth, which crashed-landed right into the trap, then another Lime Hawkmoth, which regrettably declined to stay. Then a Scorched Wing and a whole hoast of others. What a great night!

Very few moths have actually been entering the trap over recent nights, but they have been coming to the light and they come in even greater numbers to my flashlight and headlight. I generally spend about half an hour seeing what is about just before going to bed and last night there was not much to excite me. On the other hand, the mere handful of new ones this morning were a real delight; in particular the Peppered Moth, Shears and Grey/Dark Dagger, not forgetting the Small Square Spot.
