Fantastic to get a rarity in the trap

It was fantastic to see and after a little bit of research I realised that I had come across a Nationally Rare moth. Found in the Brecks having a Marbled Clover in the garden would surely indicate a migrant, very confusing as usually found on the wing from June-July but good all the same.

I caught a total of 296 moths of which Large Yellow Underwing were dominant once again with 156 being the count inside the trap. 40 Species were caught 28 Macro and 12 Micro, One brand new moth and Two others new to the garden.

As always full details below.
