Rain rain....come again!!

I discovered a few months back that when it rains if I place the MBT/funnel trap inside the kitchen door the moths fly in to escape the rain...tonight was forecast for showers at 1am but they started just before 10pm so out came the MBT and it didn't let me down with a haul of 85 moths including what looks to be a Varied Coronet which is a rarity in Derbyshire.
 The trap was on from 10:10pm till 3:30am
