More Autumn Moths.

 With the moth trap going out more regularly this Autumn, well, at least until the weather really turned wet and windy, a varied selection of moths have been caught including several that I haven't caught before in the garden.

New moths included a cracking Dotted Chestnut, Large Ranunculus and Bloxworth Snout were caught and some more familiar autumn specialists such as the Black Rustic and Green-brindled Crescent also put in an appearance.
