Almost as a distraction I have run the moth trap overnight, twice in the month, both nights being warm and still. The counts were large, 151 moths of 50 species at the beginning of the month, and this week even more, 248 moths of 61 species. Even then there were quite a few escapees when I came to inspect, especially Yellow Underwings. The total species count for the year to date is now 119, including the more challenging micromoth category. A few chosen almost at random.
