30 June/1 July 2016: total 299 species 82, (Min 13.8C, Max 15.4C, total cloud cover, slight breeze, wet overnight). With my wife and visitors waiting impatiently to go out to explore Devon for the day, I was feeling distinctly overwhelmed by the sheer number of moths. It was quite an experience! Nine new garden species and one species absolutely new to me.

There was greater moth activity late evening before retiring and the mv light continues to outperform, although I still cannot be sure that this is not just a matter of location, as the two habitats are certainly different.

By the time I went to bed I had recorded just two moths and was utterly surprised to find so many in the morning, and, in particular, my first ever White-line Snout, a nationally scarce species.

25/26 June 2016: total 115 species 53, (Min 9.1C, Max 13.4C, some cloud cover, calm, heavy dew). The utterly lovely Small Yellow Wave put in an appearance, the first time I have seen this species and a pristine Gothic. There was also a male Ghost Moth, leading me to think that there may be a local population, as I have also recorded a female twice. The only time I have ever seen these lovely moths was in Lewes, East Sussex in the company of Stephen Teale, the then chairman of the Sussex Moth Group, and a nicer chap you could not wish to meet. The males were lekking around in the dusk and a lovely sight to behold. Unfortunately, I saw no lekking in progress last night, but will now be keeping a watch.

Overnight temperatures seem to be in a somewhat downwards spiral, reflected by the much reduced "catch" last night. The only new species was a Smoky Wainscot, and, yes, I did check the underwing to make sure that it was not a Common Wainscot.

15/16 June 2016: total 56 species 27, (Min 11.5C, Max 13.6C, zero stars, calm, everywhere still dripping wet after a day with torrential downpours). My only surprise is that so many moths actually put in an appearance after what was a very wet day indeed.

14/15 June 2016: total 90 species 38, (Min 11.9C, Max 13.1C, developing cloud cover, calm to slight breeze, after a very showery day). Yesterday's constant showers had an inevitable adverse impact on the number of moths recorded, and tonight is very likely to continue this trend after a series of torrential downpours. On the other hand, the garden list has reached 200 with the arrival of a Common Lutestring.

13/14 June 2016: total 127 species 41, (Min 13.2C, Max 14.3C, zero stars, breezy, rain often heavy). As anticipated the continuing heavy rain has had an adverse impact on moth numbers, although the garden list grows apace and is now only 2 short of 200 species. Attached below are several of the recent new species sightings.

12/13 June 2016: total 148 species 46, (Min 13.5C, Max 14.8C, patchy cloud, moon, medium to gusting strong breeze, after heavy afternoon rain with more overnight). The remarkable run of above average mothing nights had to pause for breath sometime, and despite excellent night-time temperatures, heavy rain must have made many moths fly for cover - or did it just wipe them out?

There were few moths about before I went to bed and the main flight period must have been later than usual, whilst the MV light continues to outperform the actinic.

In the meantime, we reached the 100 species mark on 17 May and are now only 7 away from the 200 mark. We should hit this level in a couple of days or so.

10/11 June 2016: total 573 species 53, (Min 14.3C, Max 15.4C, zero stars, flat calm, hint of mizzle). Arriving home late after an excellent village bash, I was met with a seething mass of moths in what was an ideal mothing night, the like of which I have never experienced before. There were way too many to deal with and so I left it all for the morning. I really don't know what to make of all these Diamond-back moths - they are increasing in number and not dispersing as I might have expected. The total count is by far the largest I have ever recorded.

Although the total count is skewed by the numbers of Diamond-back moths, I am generally disappointed that there seem to be fewer micro species here than I was accustomed to in Sussex at this time of year. Mind you, they may just be a bit late this year, or the difference of 100ft in altitude could also make a difference. On the other hand, many geometrids I recorded in Sussex merely as singletons here appear in abundance, leading me to think that I am sitting on a location where there are excellent breeding colonies - Scorched Carpet is a good example, Silver-ground Carpet another and Green Carpet even more so.

6/7 June 2016: total 260 species 38, (Min 12.9C, Max 15.4C, zero stars, flat calm). This was an object lesson in how not to maximise on a night's "catch", missing all those micro species which, although attracted to the lights, never actually entered the traps, preferring instead to rest on the glass of the two greenhouses. They were, of course, gone by the morning. The trouble stemmed from a very early start that morning and the arrival of a friend, who has come to visit for a few days, and (I might add) a bit too much red wine! So, for once, despite the ideal conditions, I did not inspect the traps before going to bed. Mind you, there were some really nice species in the traps, including another micro first.

My surmise that all those Diamond-back moths had dispersed the other day proved to be totally unfounded, and I was met with mini-swarms in the morning.

5/6 June 2016: total 220 species 45, (Min 11.2C, Max 15.1C, zero stars, flat calm). The moment I stepped through the door I immediately knew that this was going to be an excellent mothing night - I could just smell it! Then, when I saw the unmistakable outlines of a hook-tip and a peacock on the main greenhouse glass I really knew it to be true.

At first I could not work out what was going wrong, as I had only recorded 20 moths by the time I went to bed, and conditions were really good. I need not have worried, because the total shot up overnight, although there were fewer micro species than I would have expected under such good conditions.

3/4 June 2016: total 30 species 13, (Min 7.3C, Max 11.1C, medium stars, calm). A disappointing night for moths, which was strange really as it was really not that cold. What made up for it though, was a visit to the Ottery St Mary Food & Families Festival in the evening where, with younger daughter and son-in-law, we feasted on a brilliant stew from the Rusty Pig and gorged ourselves on samosas and other tasty foof from the Samosa Lady, all washed down with excellent Devon beer. So good if fact, that we returned today for lunch, when we enjoyed fantastic Devon pies from the Chunk of Devon. Can't wait for next year!

1/2 June 2016: total 224 species 28, (Min 12.0C, Max 14.8C, zero stars, very windy). I have read about huge numbers of Diamond-back moths on the coast, but have never experienced anything quite like this. There were far too many in the end to count, mostly attracted by the beam of my powerful head torch. Today, whilst out walking, I also saw large numbers in the meadows - far too many to estimate numbers.

31 May/1 June 2016: total 168 species 53, (Min 14.1C, Max 15.5C, zero stars, merest zephyr of a breeze). The conditions were as near to perfect as you are likely to get and the outcome did not disappoint! The garden macro list has now broken through the 100 barrier with the arrival of a Beautiful Golden Y and the total tally including micros will soon exceed 150.

30/31 May 2016: total 93 species 33, (Min 8.3C, Max 12.8C, medium- stars, calm). It was nearly 4 degrees lower than forecast, but an excellent "catch", including 2 life species and in all 10 additions for the garden list. At the moment I cannot detect any discernible difference between the two lights in terms of numbers or different species attracted to them. What I have here in my garden are two very distinct and separate habitats, separated by about 100 metres, with thick cover between the two.

26/27 May 2016: total 152 species 35, (Min 11.4C, Max 13.7C, zero stars, dead flat calm, merest hint of rain). These are the nights we all crave. You can almost smell it the moment you step outside the door before retiring to bed. It is what I call a dead, flat, calm night, no stars or moon and a hint of rain - and in they came. A hundred up before bed is always great. Oh, and the MV light really outperformed the actinic.

25/26 May 2016: total 44 species 20, (Min 4.9C, Max 9.6C, medium- stars, breezy). A dear little Field Vole managed to dodge my mower today, and I scooped it up and carried it to safety. It ran off uttering a great squeak! The medium term weather forecast promises the end of these cold nights - about time too but only if it actually happens.

24/25 May 2016: total 57 species 19, (Min 6.8C, Max 9.5C, medium stars, breezy, despite forecast temp actually rose for a while). Today has been truly notable: visiting Yarner Woods, with the other set of grandparents, produced more Pied Flycatchers than I have ever seen in my lifetime and to top things up there were Redstarts and two Great-spotted Woodpecker nests with young. We followed this up with over a dozen freshly emerged Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary butterflies in Ashclyst Forest. What a day!

The car headlights had attracted a super-abundance of moths and so, despite the late hour, I felt it worthwhile to turn the traps on and once again the MV light excelled. The previous night at Otterton had disappoi9nted with only 5 moths in total, all very common species.

10/11 May 2016: total 32 species 20, (Min 13.2C, Max 14.6C, zero stars, calm, everywhere wet, mist & rain by morning). It was quite remarkable really, by the time I went to bed the actinic light had only attracted micros, whilst the mv had only attracted macros, including my first ever Least Black Arches, which is really quite a common moth here in Devon.

I have been expecting a Puss moth as we have an extremely old willow in the garden, mirrored by another next door in our neighbour's garden. So, there it was, clinging to the fruit cage netting and absolutely freshly emerged. What a beauty!

Our Long-tailed Tits in the rose hedge have hatched out putting paid to any more work in that area for a while.

6/7 May 2016: total 94 species 34, (Min 11.8C, Max 13.6C, zero stars, flat calm). Occasionally everything goes right - a beautiful combination of a warm night, zero stars and that great flat calm. The mv light appears to have won, although the different habitat probably has more to do with things than such a simplistic approach. Devon is turning out to be a great mothing location for me - I saw more Lunar Marbled Browns and Early Tooth-striped moths last night than I have ever seen in my life before. Then there was the added bonus of a brand new species for me and an abundance of really nice moths.

5/6 May 2016: total 18 species 10, (Min 5.3C, Max 8.9C, medium- stars, calm). Following the forecast of a warmer night, I decided to switch on the MV light again. Whilst it failed to pull in many moths, the ones it did were indeed "quality" moths and augers well (hopefully) for the next several nights, which are forecast to be even warmer. After a fairly miserable April, bring it on! In the meantime, six species of butterflies were today recorded in the garden and a pair of migrating serins.

We have now suffered more frosts in April than the whole of the rest of the winter and early spring and this does not auger well for the fruit harvest.

Two nights ago we had sub-zero temperatures in the garden, today we suffered sleet, hail & snow in Honiton during the day, and there have been more frosts this month than during the rest of the winter and early spring.

This spring is really turning out to be a cold one. In the meantime, the swallows have returned and a sole swift.

After such an interesting time a few nights ago, recent ones have been remarkably terrible, with hardly any records at all. The weather forecast had promised minimum temperatures of about 7 degrees, so it came as a shock when it went as cold as it did. The nights have not been really clear, but the moon has been bright as has Jupiter in close attendance. I turned the light on for 17/18 April until I went to bed, but there was only a big fat zero! The best part though, was the first cuckoo in the village - seems very early.

4/5 April 2016: total 18 species 8, (Min 4.3C, Max 6.6C, medium stars, calm, everywhere wet). There was a temperature difference between the two locations of 2.1C at 22:30 last night. The warmer location was the larger greenhouse nearer to the house, the colder the smaller greenhouse towards the bottom of the garden. Although I have recorded the Pale Red Slender as an agg here, perversely it will not be accepted by our CMR. Many micro species are accepted as aggs, but in this particular case not. As I say, perverse. I suspect it is actually the case that the software used does not recognise this particular agg., but why this should be when it does recognise others is a mystery, although the micro people will just tell you to ignore it. I actually want to record all that appears in my garden, even if it does come down to "an either or" situation.

2/3 April 2016: total 44 species 13, (Min 6.1C, Max 7.9C, zero stars, calm). What an excellent start to the new month - one new garden species for me, a Small Eggar and a Shoulder Stripe, only recorded three times before, the last time being in 2011 and that was also at an actinic light (see photos below). I feel that I have missed a trick though by not turning the light on before last night. The trouble is that when you move to Devon, all your friends want to visit and I did not wish to disturb the sleep of those sleeping in the bedrooms facing the back garden.

In the meantime, my Moorside moth species now numbers 40, two more than the bird list, which reached 38 a few days ago with chiffchaff and green woodpecker. It is an absolute delight to hear skylarks singing above the field opposite the house, something we never experienced in Sussex.
