And as had been hoped, a range of stuff that we don't get at home. Best of these, in the sense of unlikely that I'll ever catch up with them in the garden, were Crescent Dart & a rather beat up Brussels Lace. Four other ticks were on offer, but all species that I could conceivably get at home, Dot Moth, Clay, Buff Footman and (probable) Red Twin-spot Carpet, although I suspect I might not get that last one past a County Recorder, given similarity with Dark-barred Twin-spot, but it's good enough for me, for now, rank amateur hobbyist that I am!
I was told that the Red Twin-spot Carpet has a dark mark on the underside of each wing (fore and hind), which is a good feature, but didn't see this in a quick glance in W&T (which lists lots of other 'features' to be considered. Apparently Dark can be red on occasion, but Red doesn't have a dark form (if I got the right way around).

My Brussels Lace the other day was also a disappointing individual looking much more like Willow Beauty than the more finely etched versions in the book/online photos!

It seemed a pretty decent night, though numbers were not as high as I hoped. But I did finally join the Straw Underwing club, a complete lifer, plus I had five others NFY: Oegoconia quadripuncta (agg),Pandemis corylana, Pyrausta aurata, Phycita roberella (first for seven years) and Dusky Thorn.

Steve
I changed the light, still only three moths last night, Early Thorn, Rustic / Uncertain and Lg Y Underwing.

Now that you have given me a species then it looks like it is! Explains why I couldn't find it in my book as it's not illustrated. It was in Haslemere over Sunday night.

Very nice.

Do you have a garden species total for the month? (Macro/micro?). An average month would you say?

I'll have a look tomorrow at July & August totals. The start of August in the garden was better than normal - maybe July a bit quiet. When I get into habitat with friends in July, we normally record about 200 species to around 7 lights.

All the best
