Armed with a net I potted the first three moths I saw on the wing - 2 Little Thorns and a Bilberry Pug. Bouyed up by this I quickly set two actinics and spent a very pleasant couple of hours moffin.
I ended the night with 6+ Little Thorns, 5+ Bilberry Pugs, 5+ Lead-coloured Pugs and an Alder Kitten - a nice selection when Eyed Hawk-moth and Green Silver-lines are both added!
The ID of the Bilberry Pugs has swayed to and fro today - when I caught them, I thought they were Bilberry, when I photographed them I thought Green - but now looking on UKMoths and in the Manley book, I'm happy with original ID - I think!
