Last Nights Moths 22/8/08

Despite the hot sunny day the trap last night proved to be another dissapointment due to clearing skies and rapidly dropping temperatures. I did have another new life tick for my species in list with two individuals of Magpie Moth. I have never recorded this species before so was well pleased.
