Another cool clear night with a bright moon, not a lot of moths around but some interesting finds in the trap including my first Vapourer moth and my first Least Yellow Underwing(albeit rather scruffy looking examples of both). The Vapourer is usually a day flier so I wasn't expecting to find it in the trap.
The trap was out from 9:30pm till 3:30am
