Moth update - Diamondback Moth

I've been running the moth trap most evenings for the past couple of weeks but despite warmer day time temperatures it has still been cool over night. Both numbers and variety have remained very low but I did catch this Diamondback Moth last night. It's a fairly common species, particularly in the autumn when numbers are augmented by continental arrivals.
Other moths added to the year list are Garden Carpet, Red Twin-spot Carpet, Peppered Moth, Bright-line Brown-eye, Brimstone, Heart and Dart, Grey Birch, Seraphim and Current Pug. So far this year is proving to be even worse than last.
