The lack of wind earlier and warmer temperatures led to a reasonable number of moths - 56 moths of 15 species. Still some of the old favourites, Angle Shades (2), Large Yellow Underwing and Lesser Yellow Underwing. Also first Feathered Thorn of the year. Notable were Silver Y (11), Palpita Vitrealis (6), Rusty- dot Pearl (12), Rush Veneer (3) and Scarce Bordered Straw. Three Oak Rustic completed the collection.
