After being inspired by Matt Blissett's great talk on moth recording in Lincolnshire at Whisby NP last night, I put out my moth trap again in the garden here at Marton. Nine moths of 8 species recorded including feathered thorn, angle shades, grey shoulder-knot, pale mottled willow and an Epirrita species (probably November Moth).
