Nearly but not quite

Things have certainly slowed down but you never know when an elusive new species might decide to visit your garden so I put the trap out tonight in the hope that tonight might be that night but despite getting all excited when I thought I had a September Thorn which on closer inspection turned out to be a small Dusky Thorn it wasn't that night tonight....ho hum.
The trap was out from 8:45pm to 3am
