Moth heaven!

This has been one of the best periods for moths that I can remember.  Last night my little actinic trap caught 38 species in my garden (4m x3m) with buildings on three sides.  Highlights have included swallow-tailed moth (1), Lempke's gold spot (1), drinker (1), common swift (2), willow beauty (4), mottled beauty (2), beautiful golden Y (1), plain golden Y (1), grey dart (3), dotted clay (2), lychnis (1),  six striped rustic (2), double square-spot (5) and much much more.
