What a shower!

I tried to watch the Perseids and managed to see some of the action but there were too many distractions from the trap to concentrate, 5 new to my garden species and plenty of the usual visitors too.
The trap was out from 9:15pm till 3:05am(it started raining!)

  1. Nice catch
    Yes to both the Hook-tips the top Moth could be Uncertain or Rustic in my view.
