Another fairly productive night and migrants are still in very good supply. Unfortunately they were all the usual suspects. But with a brisk southerly wind, it was a bit disappointing not to get a scarcer species. My latest ever Burnished Brass was also notable. A quick look in the garden, this time on the Alder produced three mines of  Phyllonorycter froelichiella. This common micro is a new species for the garden.
Total unrelated is this. Like other bloggers, I neglect all the common species and only feature more interesting rarer stuff
