Hi Brian

I had my MV trap in a friend's garden on the same night. It was in a small wooded area about 50 metres from the dunes and about 200 metres from the sea. I had about 90 moths with the best being:

Pine Hawk Moth
Barred Straw
Lesser Broad Bordered Yellow Underwing
Common Emerald
Small Emerald
Clouded Border
Clouded Silver

Had Pretty Chalk Carpet same location on 20th July

Had Rush Veneer, Udea prunalis and Sycamore new for garden on 19th July.

Regards

Nige
