The highlight had previously been the first of three Waved Blacks - this female (it subsequently laid eggs) was caught on a night out to Harcourt Arboretum. Having seen one earlier in the night but not caught it, this one turned up in Richard Comont's trap just after I'd departed.... Would I ever catch one? Orange Swift - I do like these
