Rainy night in Derby

I run a local acoustic music club once a month and tonight was 'club night' so I didn't get home till nearly midnight, it had rained quite heavily from 9:30pm but by midnight it had stopped so I didn't miss out on too much trapping. I put the 'Skinner' out at 12:10 and it quickly drew a bigger audience than the music's a shame I can't charge the moths £2.50 each to get in....I might actually make some money that way! :0) . By the end of the night the amount of moths in the trap was much lower compared to the last few nights but still an interesting batch with 4 new species for my garden(including 2 micros at a guess)..
The trap was out till 3:30
