October Moths - 2021 (1 Viewer)

Despite the wind I put mine on last night and got a Red-line Quaker, two LBAM and what I think is a runt LBAM, a tiny thing about 1/3 the normal size. I can't find anything else it could be.
Light Brown Apple Moth. I used to refer to them as EP but people did not understand that either. A pity such an insignificant moth has such long names.
Last night gave up three Juniper Carpets, a Blair's Shoulder-knot and my latest ever, by four days. Large Yellow Underwing.
A better night on Saturday…..15 moths of 8 species to include- 2 Mottled Umbers, Feathered Thorn, Sprawler, Pink-barred Sallow and Yellow-line Quaker.

Just the one moth for me last night and an appropriately named one at that…..November Moth!
