New trap produces Beautiful Snout

The new Robinson Trap arrived yesterday and was put straight to work last night. As I had hoped it was less accessible for the locals tits and with decent weather I got a good catch with 41 species of macro moth. 
Highlight was the Beautiful Snout which is a recent addition to the Derbyshire list and is still only found reliably in the Darley Dale area between Beeley Moor and Clough Wood. This is only my second garden record.
Other notable moths were the Dark Spectacle and Small Elephant Hawkmoth below plus Ochreous and Dwarf Pugs, Alder Moth and Sandy Carpet.
