Moth update

I have continued to run the moth trap most evenings other than when, like last night, the temperature has been very low. In the past couple of weeks I've added Black Rustic, Blair's Shoulder-Knot, Green-brindled Crescent and Red-line Quaker and on Friday night caught this Red Underwing. This is a rather worn individual at the end of the flight season but a nice addition to the year list.
i have also caught several Snout and single Riband Wave which will be from second broods which is unusual this far north but have doubtless benefitted from the very mild weather.
