I had a decent haul Wendy.
A few that I've managed to ID
I will try to id more later but my hay fever is awful and I can't actually see very well at the moment
Oh and Erik checking out a handful of the 30+ Maybugs that came to join in

Quite forgot to post my moth pics from last night, pics a bit fuzzy taken in dark with flash in case they'd gone by morning ... which they had!!

Poor night but a couple of newbies ...

Is this Rustic Shoulder Knot, nearest I could find ??????
First Caddisfly of the season, no doubt be lots more as Moth trap is very near the pond
Won't be setting up tonight as gales starting this afternoon right through til tomorrow evening!! Grrrrr
Well done on your traps Wendy. I didn't recognise your Rustic Shoulder Knot & so looked it up, one I've never had but looks good to me. Nice one! I did one last night in the garden but the wind got up & the thunder & lightening got a bit close, so I packed up. It was good while it lasted though. The highlight was a Striped Hawkmoth
The Willowherb Hawkmoth turned up too, great that it found it's own way here from where we saw it, unless it was another one. Also had a very tiny little moth "Euspilapteryx auroguttella"
Little & large!
