### Moths of July - a record Month

July was amazing for moths in my garden.

I had the highest number of moths ever recorded by me with 1693 in a single night on the 12th July, although 1106 of these were Diamond-back Moth which was in its own right a record.

I also record the most species I had ever had in a single night on the 18th July with a whopping 105.

I caught a total of 6422 moths during July and a total of 201 species of which 113 were macro and 88 were micro.

I ran the trap 15 times and twice pulled it in at around 12.30 due to rain.

Here is the total list with the total caught and highest number caught and the number of times caught in the trap.
