30 September/1 October 2016: total 37 species 12, (Min 8.4C, Max 8.9, wind 5mph S, cloud 35%). Two nights away in Sussex attending the funeral of an old friend and returning to find our 7 fir trees felled, with the wood stacked up to season, what do we find but a dramatic drop in moth numbers. Is this just down to the lowering night-time temperatures, or the removal of those fir trees? Only time will tell!

After a few days away in the Quantocks, a surprisingly large number of moths appeared, including two new species for this garden. In the meantime, our long hedge butting onto farmland has now been cut back from some 15ft or more high to a mere 6ft and what a difference this makes to the light in the garden! We may even see more moths - you never know :)

The Oak Eggar hatchlings from the early August eggs are doing well on both privet and hazel and are still in their 1st instar. So far there are over 25 survivors and I am wondering just how long I can keep that number healthy and growing.

On the other hand, only one Lesser Swallow Prominent has survived from the dozens of eggs from late August - was there possibly a degree of cannibalization I ask? This is feeding successfully on silver birch. In the initial stages the leaves were skeletonised to a massive extent.

In the meantime, the Silver Ys can be seen nectaring on our bedding dahlia plants, which came with us from Sussex.

After a day of thunder storms and heavy rain numbers were diminished despite the favourable night-time temperatures, although recent southerlies appear to have brought in several migrant moths, the Vestal in particular, which appeared in amazing numbers (at least, for me).

9/10 September 2016: total 429 species 36, (Min 16.1C, Max 17.2C, wind 16mph SSW, cloud 75%). In answer to my question posed a couple of days ago, yes, nights are significantly warmer here in Devon than in Sussex. The average minimum temperature for the first week of September 2010-2015 in Sussex was 10.48C, whilst this year in Devon it has been 14.03C, which is one heck of a difference and the reason why I am recording so many more moths than I ever did in Sussex. This tallies with my experience last year - before we moved I compared night-time temperatures and found that there was generally a 3 degree difference.

In one other way though, Large Yellow Underwings are likely to turn out to be the commonest species here as they were in Sussex - last night we nearly achieved a double ton of them! They also show an undoubted preference for the actinic light.

5/6 September 2016: total 260 species 48, (Min 17.8C, Max 18.9C, wind 6mph NW, cloud 85%). Despite it being possibly the mildest night of the year, the lights did not go on until quite late, explaining perhaps the reduced numbers. In the meantime only the 2nd Honeysuckle moth turned up, strange really, as this garden is full of honeysuckle varieties. Hedging started today in earnest, which now means several trips to the recycling centre!

28/29 August 2016: total 199 species 42, (Min 10.9C, Max 15.1C, wind 9mph NW, cloud 35%). There are many differences between Devon and Sussex, not least that there are far more insects in Devon. We were never much troubled with flies in Sussex, but here in Devon - well, it reminds me of my childhood on the Romney Marsh in Kent and my granny's constant battle striving to keep the flies off the food. We have tried several things: the sticky tapes hanging down from the ceiling do not do a good job in my opinion and neither do the sticky traps, which can be stuck onto the windows creating much work when removed. We have two traps in the garden which are really effective. Filled with water and some powder or other, after a few days they really do the job, but after a while they do smell a bit, as the containers begin to fill up with flies and bluebottles, but at least they are not in the house. Indoors a fly swat is probably the best option but they are not that robust and bits of plastic break off. Mind you, at £1 each that matters little and we are then kept busy sweeping up the bodies.

A good diversity of insect life is not all a bad thing though, and is probably one of the reasons why our birdlife here is so wonderful. As for the moths, well there are far more here in Payhembury than was the case in Mid-Sussex, although fewer numbers of micro moths, something which may have to do with us being an extra 100ft above sea level.

27/28 August 2016: total 374 species 66, (Min 15.2C, Max 16.7C, wind 7mph SSE, cloud 35%). The moment I checked the Acu-weather web site I knew that this was going to be a really good night. High night-time temperatures, combined with slight winds and some cloud cover and in they swarmed! Amongst them a brand new moth for me, the wonderful Red Underwing, and the 400th species for the garden, quickly followed by two Vestals, only recorded by me twice before.

It seems to me that I am being asked all the time these days here in Devon if I collect moths and do I kill them. The answer is always the same - no, on both counts. They are simply recorded, photographed if interesting or likely to arouse comment and then released. It is true that I have offered a few micro moths to Kim Leaver, who has very kindly undertaken genital determination on my behalf, but these amount to fewer than a handful and they were neither rare nor endangered. So, let us hope that clears that up!

6/7 August 2016: total 327 species 104, (Min 17.6C, Max 18.6C, wind 13mph SSW, cloud 35%). What a roller coaster in terms of numbers. They are simply all over the place. Two new species, one of which was the Honeysuckle Moth, a micro, and long awaited, because we have a super abundance of honeysuckle in our garden. Well I guess that answers my earlier question - the Oak Eggar has been attracted by both lights.

4/5 August 2016: total 61 species 36, (Min 10.8C, Max 13.5C, wind 5mph WSW, cloud 35%). There is little doubt remaining in my mind that the MV light does indeed draw in significantly more moths than the actinic, certainly at this time of the year. My aim is to now switch them back again and see what transpires. I am still undecided, however, as to how much effect the actinic has in attracting certain species, for example, would the female Oak Eggar have come as readily as she did to the MV light. This is going to be harder to prove.

2/3 August 2016: total 319 species 103, (Min 15.3C, Max 17.9C, wind 12mph SSW, cloud 40%). I have swopped the two traps around in an attempt to discover if the MV light actually does draw in more moths at this time of the year than the actinic light. A great night, over a ton of species, including a great female Oak Eggar, which laid several eggs in the container. These I will try to bring on, not on oak as one might expect, but on either hawthorn or hazel (or both).

Last night saw possibly the strongest showing of the smaller micro species experienced in this garden since our move.

26/27 July 2016: total 303 species 82, (Min 15.9C, Max 16.6C, wind 8mph SSW, partial cloud 40%). Had you told me this time last year that I would now be regularly recording 300+ moths I doubt that I would have believed you. It has been a truly incredible experience this move to Devon, not just for the moths, but also the butterflies, dragonflies and birds and then you can throw in the several hedgehogs we have in the garden - it is simply great! I do, however, miss the greater diversity of micro moths we had in Sussex, but at least this does speed up the id process every morning. :)

20/21 July 2016: total 162 species 67, (Min 11.6C, Max 16.4C, wind 4mph W, partly cloudy). Just look what happens to the count when the temperature drops by some five degrees or so. I now seem to have a massive backlog: I am adrift by 6 days on the "Flying this week" pages and need to add no less than 15 new species, which have cropped up in a very short time indeed. In addition to experimenting with a new indoor lighting system for photographing moths, I have several hundred which remain uncatalogued and as for showing the numbers of moths recorded on this page over the past several days....! All I can say is that there is only so much one person can do, especially when sandwiched between grandchildren minding and working on our new garden, which is quite an undertaking at the moment.

19/20 July 2016: total 364 species 98, (Min 17.2C, Max 21.6C, wind 7mph SSW, intermittent clouds). As predicted that was the warmest night for a very long time indeed and I experienced a "seething" of moths both before I went to bed and then again when checking out the traps in the morning. Had this been Sussex, then I would have expected considerably more micro moths, both in terms of overall numbers and species and I can only put this down to the increased elevation here in Payhembury, which is about 100ft higher. On the other hand, I have never experienced such numbers of geometrids ever before in my life - it really was a massive experience! This was also my highest ever species count, just missing out on the ton. Somehow I don't think it will be too long before that happens!

18/19 July 2016: total 167 species 53, (Min 12.3C, Max 18.0C, wind 4mph SE, clear). If you thought last night was a warm one, then just wait for tonight, when we are promised the hottest night for several decades, with temperatures possibly staying in the low 20s. I wonder what that will bring (other than sleeplessness)!

17/18 July 2016: total 115 species 42, (Min 12.8C, Max 17.1C, wind 4mph NW, cloudy, near full moon and very misty by morning). I had hoped for a record "catch", but was thwarted, I suspect, by a combination of a full, bright, moon and numerous bats. This was also the first night for quite a long time that nothing new turned up in or near the traps.

I still feel somewhat inundated with all these moth records and so it will still be a while before I can get the recent 9 new species added to the web site. In the meantime, night-time temperatures should be on a rise again.

What a roller coaster this has been, with moth numbers crashing from some 450 to fewer than 50 in just a few days, all because of a dramatic fall in overnight temperature and a really bright half moon.

At some stage we have crashed through the 300 species total for the garden list and the 200th macro was a Common Wainscot, and yes, I did carefully check the underwings!

9/10 July 2016: total 451 species 94, (Min 16.1C, Max 17.4C, wind 22mph SW, cloud 85%). What a night! It was mental! This was the highest total of species I have recorded in one night and a very large overall total indeed. The moths just swarmed all around me - it took me back to my visit to Brazil, it was that good.

1/2 July 2016: total 71 species 32, (Min 9.4C, Max 11.9C, partial cloud cover, slight breeze). A much cooler night saw a dramatic fall in numbers. I have started to show some of the people in the village some of the larger moths - all have expressed complete amazement at the size, colours and sheer number of species. The education process has started! In the meantime my first ever record of a Lilac Beauty - what a lovely moth.
